New Delhi, Feb 22 (PTI) A group of Jamia Millia Islamia students staged a protest outside the campus here on Monday demanding the reopening of the university which has been closed since last year in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The students raised slogans demanding that the varsity should proceed with phase-wise reopening like the Delhi University and the Jawaharlal Nehru University.

A larger group of students had staged a protest last week questioning the university's decision to keep the campus shut when other educational institutions were reopening with COVID-19 protocols.

A senior police officer said a group of around 20 students gathered outside the campus of Jamia Milia Islamia demanding the reopening of the varsity.

“They want the university to resume classes, canteen and library. They staged a protest and left after a while. Nobody was detained,' he said. PTI GJS GJS AQS AQS
