“ED executes BJP’s order to intimidate students’ leaders and movements prelude to CAA-NRC implementation in January 2021,” it alleged.
The student body demanded Shareef’s immediate release and urged the government to stop targeting activists and organisations who led historic CAA NRC protest.
“We are not going to refrain from the cause. It’s the hallucinations of BJP that the students draw back from fighting vendetta,” an official note by Campus Front of India reads.
