Modi & Smriti: This is what your police did with us

New Delhi: 

When Manu Smriti Irani was delivering her dramatic speech, calling Rohith Vemula a child, the police was dragging and thrashing Rohith’s mother and his brave friends who had come all the way to Delhi to get their voices heard.

Watch the complete video of police brutality with the mother of Rohit Vemula and other students. Rohit Vemula, a recent victim of institutionalized murder in India was a PhD final year student. Belonging to a Dalit family Rohit used to tell that he was being reduced to his immediate identity.

The students, many of them from the University of Hyderabad where the Dalit scholar committed suicide last month, were told to leave as soon as they reached close to the protest venue. They were thrashed and dragged by the police violently. The police then took them in buses to Tilak Marg police station and Parliament Street police station. They were later freed.

If this government harasses students seeking justice, I will go for self-immolation,” Radhika said after the students were released.
