JNU Violence LIVE Updates: Amit Shah Calls Up Delhi Police, Takes Stock of Situation as Cops Enter Campus After Masked Mob Assaults Several Students, Teachers

JNU Violence LIVE Updates: After violence broke out on the campus in the evening, JNU registrar Pramod Kumar said in a statement masked miscreants armed with sticks are roaming around, damaging property and attacking people. The JNU Administration has called the police to maintain order.

JNU Violence LIVE Updates: Swaraj Abhiyan chief Yogendra Yadav was allegedly manhandled outside the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus where a clash broke out between members of the students’ union and the ABVP. Yadav said no one was there to stop the “hooliganism” and he was not allowed to speak to the media. He alleged that police personnel were standing but were not doing anything, saying “if the police is afraid, they can take out their uniform”.

Fresh violence erupted in Jawaharlal Nehru University on Sunday evening after a mob pelted stones at protesting students and brutally attacked JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh. The incident took place during a march in the varsity around 5pm when masked individuals with rods entered Sabarmati hostel. After violence broke out on the campus, JNU registrar Pramod Kumar said in a statement, “This is an urgent message for the entire JNU community that there is a law and order situation on the campus. Masked miscreants armed with sticks are roaming around, damaging property and attacking people. The JNU Administration has called the police to maintain order.”

A video showed blood dripping from Ghosh’s head after she was ruthlessly thrashed. “I’ve been brutally attacked by those who were masked. I don’t know, I have been bleeding. I am not even in a condition to talk. I was brutally beaten up,” the JNUSU president said, following which she was rushed to a hospital. A professor, Sucharita Sen, has also been admitted to AIIMS with head injury.

In a statement, the Students’ Union alleged that “ABVP had been attacking students who are peacefully protesting against massive fee hike in JNU”.

“Yesterday (Saturday) a mob led by Ritwik Raj who is councillor from School of International Studies belonging to ABVP attacked students. Then they attacked JNUSU President and General Secretary Aishe and Satish and other students. Dripta a 1st year MA student leg was broken due to ABVP violence. Today they shamelessly attacked students again injuring a student from JNU’s Centre of Social Medicine and Community Health,” JNUSU’s statement read.

Some students claimed that DUSU president from ABVP, Satender Awana, was also seen on the campus.

Countering JNUSU’s claims, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad put out images alleging that “leftist goons proceeded with unimaginable violence on ABVP activists of JNU”.

An Aam Aadmi Party worker claimed that seven ambulances have been sent to JNU and other vehicles are on standby.

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal accused police of violence and appealed to restore peace.

On Saturday, the Jawaharlal Nehru University administration had said that students agitating over the hike in hostel fees “ransacked” the server room and “intimidated” the technical staff, hampering the semester registration process.

But JNUSU said the administration used “masked” security guards to attack students. “They were shamefully wearing masks. JNUSU president was openly slapped by one of the security guards,” alleged the students’ union, which has called for a boycott of the process over the increase in hostel fees.
