New Delhi, December 15: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday questioned Delhi Police personnel's role in 'setting Delhi Transport Corporation buses on fire' during Jamia protests against Citizenship Amendment Act. Demanding a probe, he accused Bharatiya Janata Party for the violence and rampage in the national capital.
Aiming the role of BJP and the Delhi Police for inciting the violence and ramage in the national capital, Sisodia shared the image of Delhi Police personnel carrying yellow jar from beside the DTC bus and students being thrashed by the police personnel. He mentioned that BJP is behind the whole rampage and its masters might be directing the police to curb the students' protests.

Here's Sisodia's tweet:
इस बात की तुरंत निष्पक्ष जाँच होनी चाहिए कि बसों में आग लगने से पहले ये वर्दी वाले लोग बसों में पीले और सफ़ेद रंग वाली केन से क्या डाल रहे है.. ?
और ये किसके इशारे पर किया गया?
फ़ोटो में साफ़ दिख रहा है कि बीजेपी ने घटिया राजनीति करते हुए पुलिस से ये आग लगवाई है. https://t.co/8eaKitnhei

JTA condemn all sort of violence near Jamia or anywhere in India." the JTA also called an emergency meeting of extended Executive Committee on Monday at 11 am to discuss misuse of Jamia's name in the protests.

Meanwhile, reports arrived that some miscreants entered the JMI varsity's central library and vandalised its property. On one side, Delhi Police claim that they were JMI students and on the other, JMI states that they were outsiders who want to create an atmosphere of fear among the students.
