Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Tuesday compared the police action against students of Jamia Milia Islamia University with Jallianwala Bagh incident and said students are like 'Yuva bomb', reported news agency ANI.
“What happened at Jamia Millia Islamia, is like Jallianwala Bagh,” he said, according to ANI.
He said the power of youth was like a bomb and warned against igniting it. Students are like a ‘Yuva bomb’. So we request the central government to not do, what they are doing, with students."
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court today refused to act upon the petitions, which have sought court-monitored probe into the reports of police atrocities against students of Jamia Milia Islamia University and Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) during protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and asked the Petitioners to move Delhi High Court.
"We do not have to intervene. It is a law and order problem, how did the buses burn? Why don’t you approach jurisdictional High Court?" said the SC during the hearing of Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University incidents cases.
"Having regard to the nature of the matter and the vast disputed area, we find it would be feasible to appoint a single committee to go into the matter in different states. This will entail the collection of evidence from various states," ordered the bench headed by CJI SA Bobde.
The SC asked petitioners to approach High Court within the jurisdiction of incidents where protests against CAA took place.
"concerned High Courts will be at liberty to appoint former judges of SC or HC for the purpose of inquiry after hearing Centre and the respective States," the SC bench said.
