 Recounting his horror, Pandey said on Tuesday (November 19) during a press conference at the university’s administration block, “I was taken away from the human chain. I thought since I told them that I am visually impaired, they would spare me a beating, but no… One of them hit me from the front and when I tried to flee, I was beaten on my leg. The boy who helped me and took me to the hospital was also attacked by the Delhi Police. When I told the policemen that I am blind, they said ‘andha hai to protest karne kyon aata hai (If you are blind, then why have you come for the protest),” said Pandey, who is also a students’ union councillor.

 After announcing 'major rollback' in the hostel fee and other stipulations, it turns out the Jawaharlal Nehru University administration has found a way to not capitulate before protesting students while accepting some of the demands. In a press statement issued by the University Registrar, the university has kept the room rent same as proposed before and offered 50% relaxation for students from the Below Poverty Line(BPL). The move came hours after the HRD Secretary R. Subrahmanyam tweeted that the JNU Executive Committee had announced a 'major rollback' in the hostel fee structure, giving an impression that the university administration has bowed to the agitating students.<br /><br />Policewomen lift a JNU student after she tried to cross a barricade during a protest by the students over hostel fee hike, at the UGC office at ITO in New Delhi.
