THE Delhi Union of Journalists, in a statement issued on February 15, has strongly deplored the beating up of journalists, students and teachers in the Patiala House Courts today by goons. JNU Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar was to be produced in court today. Several of them including a few journalists were severely injured and had to be taken to the hospital. Even women journalists were not spared by the goons.
It is surprising that though there was a heavy presence of the Police, it refused to intervene despite repeated requests by those who were being beaten up.
