Lathi-charge on students: JAC says Police violate HRC directive
Hyderabad: Attacking police for the
lathi-charge on students at the Osmania University, the
Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC) on Monday alleged that the
police violated the directives of the Human Rights Commission
and behaved like a gang of rowdy elements.
"The state Human Rights Commission in an earlier order
had directed that the police should not deploy excess force,
that they should not resort to firing or lob tear gas shells,
and that they should not enter campus if students are
peaceful. But the police here violated these directives
yesterday," JAC Convener C Kodandaram told reporters here.
The police mercilessly cane-charged the students,
including girls, which appeared to be a pre-determined plan,
Quoting students, he claimed that the policemen who
appeared to be hailing from non-Telangana regions had a grouse
against the students.
"The policemen beat up students for raising slogans like
`Jai Telangana`. They behaved like a gang of rowdy elements.
This is nothing but an attack on Telangana. We demand stern
action against the guilty," Kodandaram said.
