As per a statement issued by the Student-protestors, they had assembled outside the campus, not to protest but to get the Ministry’s order enforced. On June 15, the Labour Ministry of Delhi had directed the University to reinstate all the 55 safai karmcharis. The order stated that the University should “directly deploy” the staff and pay their salaries. As per the students, the University has paid no heed to this order and they had therefore gathered for a dialogue with the administration. It is alleged that the University administration refused to meet the student representative, Ekta Tomar, and did not allow her to enter the campus. Subsequently, it is alleged that the Delhi Police intervened in the matter and threatened to book them under stringent provisions such as Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code and Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code. It is alleged that Anuj Yadav (Sub Inspector of PS Dwarka North, Sector 17) arrived in civil dress and started intimidating the peacefully assembled sanitation workers. “The Police were continuously exerting mental pressure on the workers and delegitimizing their concern by saying that they were blocking the gates. Despite there being an assembly of less than 5 people at each of the gates with proper social distancing with a written order in hand, the Police continued to deal roughly with the workers to throw them away off the NLU site,” the students said. As per the students’ statement, the Police forcefully took Neetu Singh Yadav (Workers’ Representative) in custody, and subsequently Ekta Tomar (Student Representative) was taken into custody for allegedly ‘instigating workers to protest’. At the Police Station, it is alleged, Police Officials namely Anuj Yadav and Mahavir Singh made a mockery of the Labour Ministry’s Written Order. “Ekta and Neetu were told by the officials that the Written Order was illegal and ambiguous. That the Labour Minister’s Order had no value. The University’s Executive Council, Governing Council and the Chancellor were the ones who had the decision-making power,” the statement reads. They were later released, after intervention of certain lawyers and activists, with a warning that they would be booked by way of an FIR under Section 188 and 144 if they were found in the vicinity of the University.
