Social media, on Tuesday (December 17), was awash with photos of ‘wanton’ youths who reportedly snuck into the police contingent deployed at Jamia Millia university to tackle anti-Citizenship Act protestors.
Many twitter users said the youths were not policemen and were wearing jeans and sneakers and wielding lathis.

Meanwhile, former Supreme Court Judge Markandeya Katju also tweeted out a photo asking if ‘someone’ could tell him who the man wielding a lathi on a group of protestors was.
