The Investigating Officer Vinod Kumar said “We have requested AMU to provide footage from the CCTV installed near the spot where students had assembled for prayer. The video will be sent to the forensic science laboratory of Agra.
On the other hand, Kashmiri students are continuously on protest demanding AMU officials cancel FIR against them.
AMU Registrar Abdul Hamid said “We are ready to provide all possible help for the police investigation. We also explained to them (students) and try to convince that police are conducting the investigation and we cannot do anything.”
