“This is a breach of students’ constitutional rights. What is the fear of security from students that they are conducting raids in hostels,” a protesting student said.

The students gheraoed the Chief Proctor Mehtab Alam’s office and shouted slogans against him for allegedly allowing police on campus.

Jamia officials maintained that the police authorities visited the campus for routine verification.
