On Sunday, the Jamia Coordination Committee (JCC), a group of Jamia alumni and students had released a video showing Delhi Police personnel beating up students inside the Old Reading Hall. Later in the day, the Delhi Police, taking cognisance of the video, said that it will be probed and released a video of its own showing students, some of them masked and one with a stone in his hand, entering a library and trying to block it from the inside by placing a desk in front of the door.
The Delhi Police had earlier claimed that it did not enter the university library.
On December 15, the Delhi Police had entered the Jamia Millia Islamia campus and cracked down on students, without permission from the vice-chancellor, after an anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) march outside the university turned violent.
An anti-CAA protest had taken place outside the university on the night of December 13 in what was one of the first anti-CAA protests outside the northeast.
