College students protect against "Police Brutality'
College students from many colleges across the State participated in protests and organized rallies on their own campuses to express solidarity with the students who were attacked by the police while protesting against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act of Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University.
At the IIT Madras, over 100 students gathered at the Gajendra Circle around noon and shouted slogans condemning against “police brutality”. Later, they took out a rally on the campus. They said their protest against the government did not mean they were anti-national. Regarding this similar protest was held at Mohammed Sathak College in Sholinganallur.
On the other hand at Loyola College, over 50 students skipped classes and gathered near the main gate, demanding justice for those who were attacked. Students belonging to the Periyar Ambedkar Study Circle demonstrated at the University of Madras’ Chepauk campus. In Puducherry, also the members of Students’ Council of Pondicherry University gathered in front of Gate II of the campus, demanding the immediate release of the detained students. They raised slogans against the police action and said State-sponsored violence had been unleashed against the students for raising their voice against the CAA.
