New Delhi: The controversy over the BBC documentary on PM Modi does not seem to stop. Two days ago, the administration of Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) had cut off the electricity and internet supply of the campus to ‘stop’ students who were adamant on screening the documentary.
On Friday, the university administration and police took similar steps in two universities of the national capital, DU and Ambedkar University.
Du’s art faculty had plans to screen documentaries but stopped the gathering of students outside it.
In both universities, a group of students shouted slogans and protested about this, many of whom were detained by the police.
As the day progressed, students gathered at the Art Faculty of Delhi University to protest against the imposition of Section 144 to stop the screening of documents.
By evening, the students could be seen clashing with the university’s police and security guards, shouting slogans of “Delhi Police go back”.
The protesters have also accused the police of assaulting them.
Earlier, a senior police officer had confirmed that 24 students were detained while trying to screen a documentary at DU.
