The Delhi Police on Thursday detained nine students of the Banaras Hindu University who were on their way from Jantar Mantar to the prime minister’s official residence to submit a memorandum. The students — eight boys and a girl — were released later. The Chanakyapuri Police said the girl was asked to leave soon after her detention while the others were let off late in the night. The girl, Mineshi Mishra, however, refused to leave without her friends.
The students had plans to meet HRD minister Prakash Javadekar and PM Modi to submit a memorandum. However, they could not get an appointment.
Delhi Commission for Women Swati Maliwal tweeted, “Just heard BHU girls have been detained at PS Chanakyapuri. Speaking to Police to immediately release them. DCW team on its way to assist them.(sic)” On a delay in the release of the students, she tweeted, “Really unfortunate that despite requests @DelhiPolice is yet to release the girls. They should be immediately released.”
