NEW DELHI: Days after the arrest of Devangana Kalita (from Assam) in connection with anti-CAA violence in Delhi, the All India Students' Association (AISA) along with various other organisations, on Wednesday, carried out a nationwide protest against the alleged "clampdown on democratic voices."

Protesting the arrest, students observed a symbolic protest demonstration at the Delhi University (DU) campuses.

"In the past few months, we have seen an unprecedented attack on civil liberties amid the COVID pandemic and nationwide lockdown. The arrests of students and activists in fabricated cases of Delhi riots has been condemned and the role of Delhi Police exposed," said an AISA leader.

Students of Jamia Millia Islamia assembled and raised their concerns over the arrests of fellow students.

Students of other Universities like Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Delhi University (DU) and Ambedkar University also raised similar concerns. Students at JNU also staged a protest demonstration.

It may be mentioned here that Jamia students Meeran Haider, Safoora Zargar and Asif Iqbal Tanha have been booked along with JNU students Devangana and Natasha for their alleged role in riots across Northeast Delhi.

These protests express our unconditional solidarity with students and every other anti-CAA activist who has been charged in false cases," said another student leader.
