Jakob Lindenthal is a German student who was studying in the Physics department of IIT- Madras. On the day of the protest when India Today TV spoke to him at IIT, he said, “I’m here in solidarity and for human rights”. Jakob stood out at most protests as a foreigner amongst Indians.

On Monday, December 23, Jakob was asked to leave by the Foreigners Regional Registration Office.

“What we heard is that officials from the immigration department got in touch with him and asked him to leave because as per his visa he wasn’t allowed to take part in political protests,” said a student who was protesting with Jakob on the 16th. “He decided to leave as soon as the instructions came through,” said the student on the condition of anonymity.
