JNU student threatened to be 'sent to Pakistan,' alleges being beaten up by CISF personnel

New Delhi: A JNU student has alleged he was beaten up at the Rajiv Chowk metro station here by a few personnel of the CISF and told he would be "sent to Pakistan", a charge rejected by the paramilitary force.

In a Facebook post, Aman Sinha, 22, who is pursuing a Master's degree, said the incident happened on Thursday evening and alleged the involvement of CISF personnel posted at the security check point of the station.

Sinha, who was sporting a beard, claimed that the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel got enraged when he "defied" their instructions to take off his earphones, which is a laid down protocol that passengers are expected to follow.

It was followed by a heated argument, he said.

"Then another CISF person came and said you are spoiling the name of the nation, 'Pakistan bhejenge tum Mussalay ko aaj.' (You Muslim, we will banish you to Pakistan today).

They dragged me to the security office through the very long passage where there was no CCTV and no public.

"They started abusing my mother and sister, thrashing and beating me very badly, saying that 'public k samne humara nam kharab kar diya'. I tried to record it which they later made me delete it threw away my phone," he alleged.

When contacted, the CISF said the student was only asked to write an apology letter for his behaviour with the security personnel, and was neither "manhandled" nor "thrashed."

"He started yelling and arguing with constables Shoeb and PC Bisht who were on duty after he was asked to remove the ear phones, which is a normal security drill in the Delhi Metro. He was unwilling and used abusive language after which he was taken to the metro control room," a senior CISF officer said.

He added that Sinha was taken to the control room of the station where he tendered an apology in writing. As per CCTV records, the officer said, the entire episode lasted about 30 minutes and the student was then allowed to go.
