Delhi: As the protests and marches continue in Delhi, 5 students of Delhi University were apprehended by the Delhi police after they were caught attending all their lectures today. They have been detained for suspicious behavior right now and no formal charges have been framed against them yet.

Delhi University- Come for the education, stay for the protests

Today, All India Students’ Association (AISA) took out a march in Delhi against ABVP while National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) organized a hunger strike calling for peace on the campus. Earlier, Akhil Bharteeya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) had taken out a march a couple of days back against the anti-national elements on the campus. With students running from one protest to another, nobody has the time to attending classes. That is what makes the behavior of these 5 students very suspicious.

Confirming the news, a Delhi police official said ,”We got intelligence inputs this morning informing us that some students may try to attend classes today. We dismissed it as a prank call but later in the afternoon, our sources at Delhi University confirmed this development. Our team reached the lecture room and found these 5 students listening intently to their professor while taking notes. We immediately detained them and brought them over to the police station. Their families have been informed and are on the way here.”

“Is this a time to attend classes? Go and join some protest march or hunger strike like normal students. Their parents have sent them here to study or to do politics? This small percentage of students bring a bad name to everyone else on the campus”, the angry police official said.

Professors at the University have also condemned this behavior. A veteran professor said ,”These protests are nice paid holidays for us. Why rob us of our off day by coming to the class when there are multiple protests outside? Even if you don’t want to be part of any protest, at least go and watch for entertainment value, wait for a fight, go and be a student and leave us alone FFS.”

Meanwhile, an online argument has started among supporters of various political parties as they debate whether these 5 students are patriots or anti-nationals.
