New Delhi : Delhi police must stop it’s shameless witch hunting of anti-NRC protest leaders. Asif Iqbal is a brilliant young student and friend who has rendered extra ordinary services in the last few months, be it providing relief after the Delhi pogrom or the corona shutdown. In a time when all of us have put aside all political considerations and are working hard to make this difficult lockdown work, the arrest of Asif Iqbal is another reminder that Delhi police is only interested in using this lockdown as a cover for illegal and baseless arrests. Asif, Safoora, Gulfishan, Meeran, Khalid Saifi, Ishrat Jahaan and so many others. There is no justification to keep even a single one of them in jail. Delhi police must be made accountable.
