Shaheen Bagh protesters put up demands before interlocutor

New Delh, Feb 22 (IANS) After the Supreme Court-appointed interlocutor Sadhna Ramachandran made a surprise visit to Shaheen Bagh on Saturday morning, the protesters put forth a series of demands before her.

Addressing the protesters, Ramachandran said, ''If the road isn''t cleared, then even we would not be able to help you. We are not saying that Shaheen Bagh should be dismantled.''

The protesters asked her if there was any direction from the Supreme Court about their security. They also told her that cases against Jamia and Shaheen Bagh protesters should be withdrawn.

The protesters demanded that the proposed National Population Register should not be implemented and action should be taken against ministers for their controversial remarks. The families of those who died or injured during the agitation should be given compensation and the government should promise security for the protesters.

Ramachandran, while leaving the protest site, said se would speak to Sanjay Hegde, the second interlocutor appointed by the top court, about her meeting with the protesters. ''The agitation has been continuing for more than two months, putting at discomfort many people who live near the protest site,'' she said.

Meanwhile, speaking to IANS, senior advocate and another interlocutor Sanjay Hegde said he would not be going to Shaheen Bagh on Saturday as he was not in town.
