A student group claimed Monday that around 15 of its activists were arrested outside of Indraprastha College for Women, where they gathered last week to protest alleged harassment of female students during a festival. However, Delhi Police have dismissed the charges.
Led by the All India Students’ Association (AISA), the agitators had gathered to protest the alleged incident and the administration’s response to it.
Police personnel were deployed in large numbers while the college gates were barricaded.
“About 15 AISA activists have been arrested at the college gate and are being taken to Burari Police Station,” claimed the head of the Delhi branch of the student union, Abhigyan.
However, a senior police official denied the allegations.
“About 10-15 protesters had gathered outside the college gate. They were removed peacefully,” he said.
No one was arrested, the official added.
Students at the Indraprastha College for Women, a subsidiary of Delhi University, claimed last week that some men scaled the institute’s perimeter walls during a festival and “harassed several students”.
Scores of students have demonstrated multiple times in recent days, demanding the resignation of the college’s newly appointed principal over security breaches during the annual festival and his allegedly authoritarian moves.
