In the evening, cops barged inside the campus and fired tear gas shells inside the library filled with students. Several students expressed difficulty in breathing.
Delhi police is running riot inside the Jamia campus. These are scenes from the Jamia library! What kind of a VC is this that allows the police to fire tear gas shells and attack students on the campus. Reports of firing outside the campus as well.

Spoke with a student inside Jamia who sent me this video along with other videos. He claimed that the students were stuck inside library with the library filled with tear gas smoke and they were having a difficult time breathing. And that some could finally get out of there. pic.twitter.com/1XaD9jPrdt

Here is a video showing the police beating up students in what I'm told is the area in front of the Zakir Hussain library. Presumably earlier in the evening. pic.twitter.com/Pg40UvZcmN
