A delegation of students of Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) met home minister Gulab Chand Kataria on Saturday and demanded removal of Jaipur commissioner of police for allegedly submitting an affidavit with ‘wrong facts’.
The delegation also urged the government to submit a factual report in the high court.
After the meeting, the government assured the delegation that it will look into their demands and do the needful.
Meanwhile, the students continued their agitation on the second day on Saturday at University of Rajasthan campus. A contingent of police force was deployed outside the university to deal with any untoward incident.
Later, Kataria told HT that he would send the students’ message of removing the police commissioner to the chief minister by Saturday evening. He said he will talk to the additional advocate general about the report that is to be submitted with the high court.
ABVP student leaders Rajesh Meena and Shankar Gora said the police have mentioned in the affidavit that students in university were contesting elections with the help of land mafia and history-sheeters. “We demand that the police should prove their allegations,” they said.
They said on Monday, they would be approaching to double bench of the high court over the decision of scrapping the recently-held students’ elections. Gora said “We have asked the government to help us in providing the factual report about the elections and government has assured to help us.”
