The students of Delhi University protested against the Jamia incident today at Arts Faculty.Some students from the Political Science department called for a boycott of exams to show solidarity with Jamia students. Meanwhile, DUSU President Akshit Dahiya said in a statement “It is my duty to go out to help the students who are appearing for the exams if they are stopped from doing so. A handful of students were preventing entire faculty to not appear also claiming falsely that the examination would happen later. The students called me for help and when I went I was attacked by them. Most of them were not even students of DU. They raised antinational slogans in front of me. We can never let such things happen in DU. We reject any lockdown call for DU and I reach out to all students to appear for exams without fear. We condemn the act of such violent perpetrators and such environment building cannot be tolerated.”
