After the video went viral, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra took to Twitter to condemn cops actions. Priyanka wrote, "See how the Delhi Police is indiscriminately beating students who are studying. A boy is showing the book but the policeman is thrashing him with sticks."
Slamming Home Minister Amit Shah and Delhi police, Priyanka Gandhi said that the minister and cops lied that they had not beaten anyone in the library.
"After watching this video, if action is not taken on the violence in Jamia, the intention of the government will be completely exposed to the country," she added.
