JNU protest march: Two constables suspended

New Delhi: A woman constable and a head constable of the Delhi Police have been suspended for allegedly snatching the camera of a photo-journalist during a protest march organised by JNU students, the department said on Suday.
On Friday, Jawaharlal Nehru University students had taken out a march from the varsity campus towards the Parliament Complex over various demands, including academic freedom. They were, however, stopped near Sanjay Jheel area in south Delhi by the police, who also resorted to baton-charge and used water cannons to disperse the students participating in the march.
In the clashes that followed, journalists were targeted, two women among whom filed separate complaints accusing cops of assaulting and molesting them. "On a complaint received from the photo-journalist who had alleged snatching of her camera, a case was registered and taken up for investigation. The camera has since been traced and the police is contacting the photo-journalist to facilitate its restoration," the police said.
