After recording his testimony, Mustafa Mojib, a M.A. student, told , "After detaining us from the campus, they took us to gate No. 7 of the university near the metro pillar and started thrashing us. They were also hurling communal abuses, like 'Kalma padh lo saalon'."

Narrating his ordeal, Mojib said, "On December 15, I was in the library. Around 5.25 p.m, I could hear the sound of tear gas shells being fired inside the library. After that the police entered the library, began to beat everyone."

"After we were detained, they told us that we were being taking to Holy Family hospital for first aid. But they took us to the New Friends Colony police station. We were not even given water to drink. We were not allowed to meet lawyers."

A 4-member NHRC team, headed by a DSP, visited the campus and recorded statement of students who either hurt or witnessed the police brutality in the library.

Of the 40 students present, 25 gave their version of the incident in writing to the NHRC team.

Before written statements, the team interacted with them when they narrated the police action. The team will record the statement of the remaining students, employees and security personnel of the university on Wednesday.
