Ritu is a former professor of Delhi University.
Dr. Ritu Singh is a Dalit professor of DU. She has been an ad-hoc teacher in the psychology department of Daulat Ram College, DU. About four years ago, Ritu had made serious allegations of caste discrimination against the Principal Dr. Savita Roy. However, he made this statement when he was thrown out of the college allegedly due to indecent conduct. He had said that he was thrown out of the college due to caste discrimination. After teaching as an assistant professor for about a year, he was removed.

Strike started demanding dismissal of principal
In 2020, he staged a protest against the dismissal of the principal. However, it did not help much and the matter went to court. Despite this she kept fighting her battle.

,Ritu used to give speeches in college.
While the principal accused Ritu Singh of making speeches in the class and making the students unhappy, the professor argued that he had never taught the students whose names the principal had mentioned. Dr. Ritu Singh’s case has also gone to SC Commission. Even after this, she was sitting on strike since September last year.

However, on Tuesday (January 9), Ritu Singh was on a dharna with some of her colleagues when Delhi Police detained her and removed her from the dharna. Ritu Singh has also campaigned against the suicide of Rohit Vemula, a PhD student of Hyderabad Central University.

People came out in support on social media
Now after Delhi Police took him into custody, ‘Justice for Ritu Singh’ and ‘Delhi Police’ are continuously trending on Twitter. Delhi Police has taken this action against protesting without permission. Ritu Singh has shared a video regarding the police action.

While sharing Professor Ritu’s video, Tribal Army founder Hansraj Meena has written that instead of giving justice to Dalit Professor Dr. Ritu Singh, who has been on strike in DU for the last 125 days, the Delhi Police forcibly removed her from the protest site. Destruction is a cowardly act. There is also an allegation of damaging the picture of Ambedkar Saheb, which is a condemnable act.
