Assam student held in Delhi for anti-CAA stir

By Spl Correspondent

NEW DELHI, May 24 - The Delhi Police has arrested two members of women�s student organisation Pinjra Tod, including a student from Assam, in connection with their alleged role in the Jafrabad anti-CAA sit-in protest in February this year.

The Jafrabad sit-in prompted a pro-CAA rally by the BJP on February 23 and a day later, riots broke out in northeast Delhi.

The two activists � Devangana Kalita and Natasha Narwal � are students of Jawaharlal Nehru University here and were arrested from their homes, the organisation confirmed.

In a statement, Pinjra Tod said the activists were arrested around 6 pm. �They were arrested from their homes on the basis of an FIR registered by Jafrabad police station... police did not give reasons to their families for their arrest,� the organisation said, condemning the �witch hunt of democratic activists and students�.

While Kalita is an MPhil student at the Centre for Women�s Studies, Narwal is a PhD student at the Centre for Historical Studies. They are both founding members of Pinjra Tod, formed in 2015, primarily to oppose hostel curfews in Delhi�s colleges and universities.
