On Tuesday, around 35-40 students were present to record their statements with the team of National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), which has deputed a team led by its SSP, Manzil Saini, to conduct an inquiry to know whether incidents in the varsity involved violation of human rights, officials said.

  1. Why the NHRC team is visiting to record the statements of the students? This will give a boost to rioters and the criminals who attacked brutally the police personals. Instead of going to the university NHRC should go to the police and help them to arrest the rioters and criminals.
