New Delhi: The Joint Action Committee for Social Justice, Delhi, here on Monday condemned the recent brutal attack by the Telangana State police on the students and faculty of the University of Hyderabad (UoH), stating that the academic community in Delhi was extremely angered at the treatment meted out to students and faculty there.

Justifying the students protest against the administration of the university and the Vice Chancellor, P Appa Rao, who accordingly is one of the accused in the 'institutional murder' of Rohith Vemula, the members of the JAC told media that such repression was unwarranted and uncalled for. The presence of the police inside campus was also unnecessary and reflected the fear psychosis that had gripped the administration. Tracing the recent events at the varsity, they said all the culprits must be booked in the Vemula case and the police must be removed.

All cases filed against the students and the faculty must be withdrawn. The press conference was addressed by Nandita Narain from Delhi University Teachers Association, Manisha Sethi of Jamia Teachers' Solidarity Association, Rukmini Sen from Ambedkar University Delhi Faculty Association; N Sukumar, Professor of Political Science in Delhi University, Partha Sarathi Ray, Assistant Professor, IISER, Kolkata and Convenor of JAC, West Bengal and Ajay Patnaik from Jawaharlal Nehru University Teachers Association.
