Mumbai police deny permission to Jignesh Mevani's event

Mumbai: In a fresh development, Mumbai Police have cancelled an event that was to be attended by newly-elected Gujarat MLA and Dalit crusader Jignesh Mevani and JNU student leader Umar Khalid, amid massive protests at the venue.

Mumbai Police swooped on the Bhaidas Hall, in the posh western suburb of Vile Parle on Thursday morning, and stopped the Left-leaning Chhatra Bharati's All India Students Summit which was scheduled to be addressed by Khalid and Mewani. The police also detained few students and event organisers who protested the cancellation of the event.

"We had assured the police that there would be no speech that would incite any law and order problem".

The FIR against Mevani and Khalid was registered at Pune's Vishrambag police station, under whose jurisdiction the Parishad was held, on a complaint filed by Akshay Bikkad (22) and Anand Dhond (25), who claimed not to be affiliated with any organisation.
