New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Monday said that it was yet to receive a complaint in connection with the alleged mass molestation in Delhi University’s Gargi College even as the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said that it will raise the issue in the Rajya Sabha.
The alleged incident took place on February 6 on what was the third day of the college’s annual fest Reverie. It, however, only came to light on Sunday after students took to social media to narrate their ordeal.
Commenting on the issue, DCP South Atul Thakur said, “We are inquiring into the matter, no complaint has been received so far.”
The Delhi Police and the Rapid Action Force (RAF), both of which were stationed outside the college, have been accused by the students of being ‘mute spectators’ as goons allegedly went on the rampage inside.
AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh, meanwhile, has given Zero Hour Notice to discuss the issue in the House.
On Thursday, which is when the alleged incident took place, it is said that the goons, described as ‘middle-aged men’ by the students, barged into the campus and committed the act. They were allegedly holding a pro-CAA rally nearby and raised slogans of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ while sexually harassing the girls.
The students have also accused their principle of not acting on their complaint. It is alleged that instead of helping the students she asked ‘why do you attend fests if you don’t feel safe?’
Students’ accounts and videos of the alleged incident have gone viral on social media.
