JNU protest: 2 cops suspended for manhandling journalist


A woman constable and a head constable of the Delhi Police have been suspended for allegedly snatching the camera of a photo-journalist during a protest march organised by JNU students.

Madhur Verma, Delhi Police PRO, said two police personnel have been placed under suspension on the basis of the preliminary findings of vigilance enquiry for the unprofessional conduct of mishandling the journalists.

On Friday, Jawaharlal Nehru University students had taken out the march from the varsity campus towards the Parliament Complex over various demands, including academic freedom.

They were however, stopped near Sanjay Jheel area in south Delhi by the police, who also resorted to baton-charge and used water cannons to disperse the students participating in the march.

Two journalists have filed separate complaints accusing police personnel of assaulting and molesting media persons.
