New Delhi: JNU Students’ Union president Aishe Ghosh, who was injured in the violence that took place at the university, Monday said she was specifically targeted during a peace march on the campus.
Ghosh said a group of around 20-25 masked people disrupted the peace march and attacked her with iron rods Sunday.
She suffered head injuries and was admitted to AIIMS here. Ghosh was discharged on Monday.
“I was specifically targeted on Sunday during a peace march on the university campus. Around 20-25 masked persons disrupted the peace march and attacked me with iron rods,” the JNUSU president told PTI.
She alleged that when she was at the School of International Studies Saturday to oversee the registration boycott being done by the JNUSU, a professor had threatened to teach her a lesson.
The students’ union had given a call for boycotting the semester registration process. The registration process started on January 1 and ended on January 5.
Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
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.
