The AMU Students’ Union had earlier demanded a CBI inquiry into Ahmed’s mysterious disappearance from last two and half month and had also submitted a memorandum to the President of India. In their memorandum, the union didn’t named any organization or student union, had blamed certain outfits for spreading unrest in universities across the country. Blaming ABVP indirectly “These organizations were also involved in the killing of of Rohit Vemula of Hyderabad Central University and a professor in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh”, the memorandum had stated.
Dubbing the police action as “unjustified and undemocratic”, AMU Students’ Union President, Faizul Hassan, claimed that several students were injured in the lathi charge. He accused the police of beating students with lathis on their heads and alleged that three students, including Maoinuddin, a student of BA 1st, were admitted in the hospital with head injuries and fractures.
