Arjun Singh backs legal aid to detained Jamia students

New Delhi: Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Arjun Singh on Friday supported the Jamia Millia Islamia University vice-chancellor's efforts to offer legal assistance to two students detained for Sep 13 serial bombings in Delhi that killed 24 people.

Singh met vice-chancellor Mushirul Hasan and assured all help to him, the HRD ministry spokesperson said.

"The minister has advocated legal assistance to the students detained over the Delhi blasts," the spokesperson said.

"The minister is of the view that investigative agencies cannot pass judgement against students detained in the blast case at an early stage," the official added.

The police have detained Mohammad Shakil and Zia-ur Rehman for their suspected role in the bombings in the capital. Vice-Chancellor Hasan has come forward with legal assistance to the two Jamia students held for alleged terror activities.

The vice-chancellor said that receiving legal assistance was the constitutional right of these students. Any citizen, he said, was entitled to get legal aid from the exchequer if he could not afford it.

The Academic Council of Jamia Millia Islamia has also decided to form a legal aid committee. The varsity will use the students' assistance fund of Rs.650,000 to provide legal aid to students.

Hasan said the arrest of the two students was an isolated case and asserted that he would not let the university be used as an arena of politics.

"This has led to a sense of fear and apprehension amongst students. They are feeling targeted after the incident. This is not excepted," he said. IANS
