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.

A man, wearing a black jacket and blue jeans, was ‘identified’ by a twitter user as Bharat Sharma, a Law student of Delhi University and a state executive committee member of the ABVP. He was seen kicking a protestor.
