FIR against JNUSU President Aishe Ghosh injured in mob attack

Aishe Ghosh received injuries and was seen bleeding when masked goons armed with rods and sticks unleashed violence on the JNU campus

New Delhi: Delhi Police registered an FIR against JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh and also 19 others for attacking security guards and vandalizing several rooms a day before the Sunday night violence on JNU campus.

The FIR has been filed complaint by the JNU administration. On January 5 the FIR was registered and is among the three FIRs that Delhi Police have registered in connection with the JNU violence.

Delhi Police has failed to make any arrests in the JNU violence case even two days have passed to the attack. The violence has triggered protests across universities in India.

Aishe Ghosh received injuries and was seen bleeding when masked goons armed with rods and sticks unleashed violence on the JNU campus.

Ghosh and 30 others were injured in the violence. The students and teachers were released from hospitals on Monday.

On Monday Ghosh said she was hit with several rods during Sunday’s “organized” attack on the JNU campus, but every iron rod used against students will be answered by debate and discussion and the university’s culture will never be eroded.

JNUSU has demanded the resignation of Vice-Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar, saying he had not bothered to meet or check upon the injured students and professors.

A crowd of masked young people stormed the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus in south Delhi on Sunday evening and specifically targeted students in three hostels, including one occupied by women, unleashing chaos with sticks, stones, and iron rods, hitting inmates and breaking windows, furniture, and personal belongings.

“From the past four-five days, some RSS-affiliated professors were promoting violence to break our movement against the hostel fee hike. Are we wrong to question for safety from the JNU and Delhi Police,” the JNUSU president asked on Monday.

While in the first investigation by the Delhi Police has revealed that both JNUSU and ABVP workers were involved in the violence on Sunday.

The investigation has found that outsiders were also brought inside the campus to spread violence.
