The coordination committee of Indian Muslims, in a memorandum submitted to the Prime Minister's Office, has demanded that the government take note of the pertinent questions raised by several citizens' inquiry teams about the encounter at Jamia Nagar in New Delhi [Images] on September 19.
Following a rally held at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on Friday, the committee also demanded that a high level judicial inquiry should be instituted to probe the incident at Jamia Nagar.
The memorandum also states that no person or organisation should be blamed for terror acts without proper inquiry and evidence.
Some of the organisation's other demands are:
� Stop harassment of common people in Delhi.
� Police should desist from torture and third degree methods and should respect the guidelines of the Supreme Court in this regard.
� Even minors are being picked up by the police. They should be immediately released.
� Some of the arrested students have evidence of their innocence. They should be immediately released.
� While conducting raids and detaining people, the police should take the residents' associations and leading personalities of the area into confidence.
� The media must be made responsible so as to behave in an unbiased manner.
