Talking to mediapersons, party leader Ajay Maken alleged that Delhi Police did not act during violence witnessed in Patiala House court premises over the past three days.

Referring to incident involving Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union leader Kanhaiya Kumar, he said that "a person under police custody" was beaten in the court premises and so were media persons.

"Police was sitting pretty and were not doing anything. Delhi Police is hand in glove with these miscreants and goons of BJP.

"The Congress demands that the police commissioner should immediately be sacked and no post-retirement placement should be given to him," Maken said.
