Jamia Millia Islamia Violence: Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the petitioners to approach the High Court within the jurisdiction of incidents where protest against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) took place. The apex court said that concerned High Courts will be at liberty to appoint former judges of Supreme Court or High Court for the purpose of inquiry after hearing Centre and the respective States.
The top court during Jamia Millia Islamia/Aligarh Muslim University incidents case hearing said that “We do not have to intervene. It is a law and order problem, how did the buses burn? Why don’t you approach jurisdictional High Court?”
Meanwhile, Indira Jaising appearing for Jamia students said that “It’s established law that universities are not a place where police can enter without permission of Vice Chancellor. 1 person lost eyesight. Legs of some students were broken.” To this Solicitor General, T Mehta replied: “Not a single student lost eyesight”.
