Students of Indraprastha College for Women, University of Delhi, have claimed that during a college fest on Tuesday, March 28, several men breached the college’s boundary wall and harassed several students, news agency PTI reported.
The college students also pointed out that the college administration and the police did not respond to the matter. Activists of the All India Students’ Association (AISA) further alleged that the men raised slogans such as “Miranda, IP dono hamara (Miranda House and Indraprastha College are both ours)” and “Miranda nahi chhoda to IP bhi chhodenge”. Don’t spare Miranda, we won’t spare IP either)”.
In a similar incident in October 2022, students of Delhi University’s Miranda House College claimed that men trespassed the college boundaries and gates during an open Diwali. The men allegedly called out to students on campus and raised sexist slogans.
Anjali, an alumnus of Indraprastha Women’s College and secretary of AISA’s Delhi University unit, also shared alleged evidence of the incident. In a picture shared by him, four men are standing near the boundary wall of the IPCW, and one is scaling the boundary wall of the college. In another video clip, the police can be seen asking the students of the college to vacate the campus.
“Today, the IPCW celebration was underway when drunken men climbed the walls, barged into the campus and harassed the gender minorities. Anjali tweeted, “Miranda IP dono hamara”, raising slogans “Miranda nahi chodo to IP bhi nahi chhotenge”.
Another college student alleged that “miscreants entered the IPCW festival today and harassed several female students, injuring one. The goons were simply taken out by the Delhi Police. We demand their immediate arrest.” .
