Aligarh Police had earlier, filed an FIR against 1,200 unnamed AMU students and charged with Sections 188 and 341 of the IPC for breaching Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure. The students were holding a candle march in solidarity with the fellow students who were protesting against the CAA at AMU and Delhi' Jamia Millia Islamia University and were harmed in police action. 

The AMU Teachers' Association on Friday sought immediate withdrawal of false cases filed against AMU students and punishment for the guilty police personnel. They called for a judicial investigation into the clashes between UP Police and AMU students.

Several videos and pictures emerged in social media showing police using its force to stop the demonstration.
