A hint of justice at last

The traumatic experience of Jamia Millia Islamia students of police encounter came to an end when the additional district and session judge Yogesh Khanna on 1 December lifted all charges against the 67 students of the university who were implicated by the police in different cases.

The story started on the night of 9 April when hundreds of Delhi Police personnel entered the campus of Jamia Millia Islamia and let loose all brutality on that fateful night. It was not just brutality. It was something more dreadful if it could be given a name. Hundreds of students of the university who encountered the police arguably very first time will never be able to forget that day of their lives when they were brutally beaten up by the gun wielding cops, some by batons, some by rifle butts and almost everyone was thrashed by the mighty fists of these brave policemen. They fired tens of rounds of rubber bullets injuring around hundred student who were preparing for their ongoing examination.

Students were chased on that fateful day everywhere wherever they went. There was no place to hide on that day. The students of Shafiqur Rahman Kidwai (SRK) hostel were worst sufferers. Even after seven months the broken window panes and rooms without doors tell what had happened on that unforgettable night. Students were first beaten up in their rooms and then they were dragged or thrown over the stairs to the ground floor and beaten up on the road. The policemen standing on both the sides of staircases were beating these students while they were being dragged. According to the students on an average 6 policemen were beating one student.

The small mosque of the hostel also says all. It too was targeted on that night. Students offering their prayers were also not spared. Even the imam of the mosque was beaten up brutally and his hand was fractured by rampaging policemen. The account of memories of students who were subsequently carried to different police thanas, jails and hospitals did not vary even a little bit. All were abused verbally and bodily, denied first aids, and left hungry for days. No discrimination was made when it came to treating the students. They were tortured in all the possible manners by policemen even in thanas. 

The police action was deplored by all political, social and human rights organizations. A number of human rights organizations in their reports had directly blamed the Delhi police for its excesses. Students have not been able to forget days when they were rounded up in lockups and police stations. Even the waiving of charges has not made them overjoyed as they think that justice is yet to be delivered. Abdul Hai who was beaten up mercilessly on that day says that waiving of charges does not mean anything for him. He says that the charges were false and did not hold any ground. He adds that he would have been happy had the policemen responsible for his injuries been punished for the crimes they committed. 

Several students who were implicated in false cases following the incidents have spelled same sentiments. They are not happy at all over the withdrawal of the cases they were implicated in. Everyone says that they will be happy only when the perpetrators of crime are punished. But the waiving of charges has relieved them from appearing before the court on every date.
