NEW DELHI – Over 60 students and activists protesting against the bulldozer action by the UP government in Prayagraj (Allahabad), were detained by the Delhi police outside UP Bhavan on Monday.

Student unions Students Islamic Organization (SIO), Fraternity movement, Muslim Students Forum, and All India Students Association (AISA) carried out protests against the ‘illegal’ demolition of Javed Mohammed’s and student activist Afreen Fatima’s house in Prayagraj on Sunday.

Welfare Party of India leader Javed Mohammed is accused of being the key conspirator in the protests on Friday, against the now-suspended spokesperson BJP Nupur Sharma in UP. Following the protest, the administration demolished his house declaring it illegal.

Protests also took place at the Jamia Millia Islamia despite a heavy police presence that was deployed after the word of the protest being organised spread.

The police attempted to prevent students from entering the campus. However, students of the Jamia Millia Islamia, including anti-CAA activist Ladeeda Farzana, made their way into the campus and protested against the illegal demolition of 22-year-old Afreen Fatima’s house in Allahabad and the persecution of Muslim protestors in UP, Jharkhand and other parts of the country.
