New Delhi: The JNU Students’ Union on Saturday alleged that the police were informed about a mob’s presence on the campus much before the violence on January 5 but they ignored the messages.

“They were informed at 3 pm and the messages were read at 3.07 pm but the messages were ignored,” the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) claimed at a press conference here.

It also alleged that the RSS-affiliated ABVP was involved in attacking women students and JNUSU office-bearers last week.

The students’ union said the ABVP members hit women students even on January 4 and when JNUSU general secretary Satish Chandra Yadav intervened, they attacked him as well.

“Attackers targeted specific rooms in Sabarmati Hostel and even threw students from balcony, but did not touch the room of an ABVP activist,” it added.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.

  1. Aishe Ghosh looks so young and innocent, but she is such a vicious character. It is indeed shocking, how leftist ideology makes demons out of youngsters.

  2. All call records should be scrupulously preserved. At some stage, a forensic enquiry, possibly by a judicial personage, will become unavoidable. Shri Rahul Kanwal and the India Today team deserve commendation for superb reportage.
