The Joint Action Committee for Social Justice at the University of Hyderabad has condemned the arrest of 15 students of Students Islamic Organisation (SIO) in Kerala.
The students were arrested in Kohzikode when they were staging a protest against the brutal police attack on the University of Hyderabad (UoH) students and were demanding justice for Rohith Vemula, the JAC said in a statement on Tuesday.
It alleged that SIO members were slapped with false charges and they continue to be in judicial custody.
Condemning the attack on students and the targeting and criminalisation of Muslim youth, the JAC demanded their immediate release and dropping of all false charges.
The JAC comprises 14 organisations of students.
