this is the case so far. my friend was visiting a friend here, in sukhdev vihar. she had classes the other day and decided she wanted to go home and get to classes from there, so she decided to leave for home, which is a p.g. accomodation in gk1. since it was 4 in the morning, i decided to accompany her till her destination, which knowing how safe delhi is, is nothing unexpected. i did so, dropped her off, and headed back in the same auto. i stopped the auto to have some water since i was very thirsty at the time. a pcr van pulled up in front of us and asked why the auto was standing and not moving. imagine, that is their concern. had the auto been moving they would have had no problem. so i got off and explained the situation. they asked me where i lived and where i was coming from. i answered, jamia. they asked me my name, i answered. they asked me what address i had come to, and i told them. my friend's name they asked and i told them. they asked my for my phone number and i gave it to them. the sho who had asked me, called the number to verify if it was indeed mine, and my phone rang. then he told me i could leave. now, they have been going to the pg and harassing my friend, her landlady, who in turn harasses her thus for being harassed by the police, and have basically made my friend's stay in delhi miserable. if they really have a problem, which they do not state clearly at all, and all they do is imply that '' there might be something wrong going on with boys from jamia coming to this area at odd hours '', they have my number. they haven't intimated me once. not once. yet they go to the pg and create problems for my friend and the owner of the house several times a day. what do i do. it is always so hard to act under such circumstances because despite the fact that you know you have done nothing wrong, and are free to do everything that you have been given a right to being a citizen, the undue power the delhi police excercise is really intimidating. i know of my right to freedom of movement. i've known since i was a little boy in school. and why wouldn't i drop a girl off, do they think delhi is the safest place in the world for women. even in the day it is not, so i'm sure not leaving her safety to chance in the night. what should i do. kindly help.
sidmis posted a topic in RTI in MediaStudents of Jamia take RTI route to dig facts on encounter as reported by Neelam Pandey, Hindustan Times, September 28, 2008 New Delhi, The students of Jamia Milia Islamia are now taking the Right to Information (RTI) route to lay bare the facts about the encounter that took place in Batla House last Friday. One of the students of Mass Communication Research Centre (MCRC), Jamia, has filed four individual RTI applications in various institutions to get a clear picture of the blast and the encounter. "People have been agitating and expressing their views in violent ways. But I think we have a tool in our hand that was made to create transparency and that's why I have filed four RTI applications to get actual facts about the incident rather than listening to various versions being given by the police and the government," said Afroz Alam Sahil, a resident of Batla House. He is a student of MA Mass Communication, Jamia. Sahil, a 20-year-old has filed four RTI's in the Supreme Court, National Human Resource Commission (NHRC), Delhi Police and All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). "I have been speaking to a lot of students and the residents regarding the incident. While many of them want to get a clear picture of the encounter but they are scared to the extent that they are shying away from even filing RTI applications lest they might be harmed in some way or the other," added Sahil who is a native of Bihar. Sahil has been motivating other students from Jamia also, to use the RTI to get their questions answered. "I have organised a meeting tomorrow to discuss the issue regarding filing other RTI applications by students as well as residents. There are many unanswered questions about the incident in the residents mind and if we fail to get our queries answered then we will also get to know how efficient is the RTI," added Sahil.
