New Delhi, Jan 8 (PTI) CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Wednesday alleged the Delhi Police was a 'puppet' of the Modi government and demanded a court-monitored probe in the JNU violence, saying a 'pre-judged' police inquiry has no 'credibility'. A masked mob armed with sticks and rods on Sunday attacked students and teachers and damaged property on the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus, injuring at least 35 people, including JNU Students' Union president Aishe Ghosh.
It has been alleged that the Delhi Police personnel were present outside the campus gates when students were being beaten up by the rampaging mob.
'The Delhi Police comes directly under (Union Home Minister Amit Shah). Its behaviour, approach and attitude so far is enough evidence of it being a puppet of Modi govt. A pre-judged police inquiry has no credibility. This needs a court monitored independent inquiry and include conduct of the central govt,' Yechury tweeted. PTI ASG ASG TIR TIR
