After a strong uproar over the police inaction during the violence that took place inside the campus of Jawaharlal Nehru University on January 5 that too allegedly in the presence of cops, the Delhi Police has come up with advertisements in the national dailies requesting those who are witnesses of the incident for ‘information’ about the clash between two groups of students.

The advertisement reads:

‘Appeal to All

Whereas an incident of clash between two groups of students took place at JNU campus on 5-01-2020 and a Special Investigating Team (SIT) of Crime Branch headed by the undersigned is investigating the same.

Delhi police publishes ad requesting info on JNU; what happened to available information?

This advertisement published after three days of the incident and at a time when so many videos and audios have become viral on social media raise certain questions:

  • Why did the cops not detain those who were armed with sticks and rods etc? Over the past few weeks, Delhi Police have been quite active detaining people on any pretext during the anti-Citizenship Act protests. They were right there at the main gate of JNU in the evening and could well sense that violence could take place inside.
  • Delhi Police have been supervising the sensitive areas with the help of drones and other state-of-the-art equipment. What happened in JNU that they did not even think of using drones etc. to see what was happening inside the campus?
  • What have they done about the abundant information which is already available on social media in the form of photos, videos and even audios?
  • Is this advertisement just a publicity gimmick to prove that Delhi Police is taking some action on the JNU incident while actually they are giving ample time to the ‘interested’ parties to create more versions of the entire incident to bring in more vagueness and confusion?
