Request the Supreme Court now to take suo moto notice of the violation of the human rights of the students.”.Senior Advocate Colin Gonsalves also apprised the Court of the situation of the students who sustained injuries and were detained..CJI SA Bobde with Justices BR Gavai and Surya Kant told Senior Advocates Indira Jaising and Colin Gonsalves that the Court will hear and decide the matter with a cool mind, not in an atmosphere of rioting. CJI Bobde said,.“We first want the rioting to stop. We have enough experience of knowing how rioting takes place, we know what the rights are. Just because people are throwing stones outside, it is not the reason for the Court to decide Let the rioting stop first..Jaising informed the Court that the students across the nation were victims of violence that was unleashed on them by the Police. Gonsalves told the Court that the students who were detained yesterday had sustained injuries and were not given medical assistance, while many of them even had broken bones..The students were constrained to go and hide in toilets and hostel rooms on account of the Police action. The lawyers told the Court that Police personnel had entered into the university library without authorization..CJI Bobde said that the Court is not saying who is wrong or who is right at this stage but the rioting needs to stop, regardless of which quarters it is coming from.. CJI Bobde added,.“Public property is destroyed Buses are being burnt… It doesn’t matter by whom. We will decide in a cool frame of mind. We will hear the matter and see what can be done. Prima facie I don’t think Court can do much, it’s a law and order problem..We will determine the rights but not in this atmosphere of riots..the riots must be stopped.”.Conlin Gonsalves said, “We understand the Court doesn’t want to be held at ransom.”.“We are not opposed to peaceful demonstrations, you want to take to the streets, take to the streets but this is not how”, CJI..The Court said, if the rioting stops, the Court would like to look at the petition and hear the matter tomorrow..Bar & Bench is available on WhatsApp. For real-time updates on stories, Click here to subscribe to our WhatsApp.
