14 AMU students booked for sedition after scuffle with crew of a TV news channel

Security was beefed up on Wednesday in the politically sensitive Aligarh Muslim University following a scuffle between some students and an English TV news channel. The altercation took place over reports of controversial AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi visiting the campus. Sedition charges were slapped against twelve students, including the university students’ union chief, following a complaint of alleged assault filed by an ABVP member.

The invoking of sedition prompted students and union leaders to declare “boycott class” in the campus.
 


A video circulating on social media showed the media persons getting into a verbal tiff with the college students and staff who objected to filming on the campus without permission. The incident also came in the wake of an ABVP activist alleging a murderous assault on him by certain AMU students who also raised “Pakistan Zindabad slogans.”
