In yet another disturbing incident of violence against students, as many as 50+ masked miscreants, with sticks and iron rods in hands, barged into the Jawaharal Lal Nehru University Campus in Delhi on Sunday and beat the students and teachers.
The attack left as many as 24 people, including both students and teachers, injured. As many as 3 people are currently in the ICU, post the attack.
Though the identity of the goons’ who carried out the cowardly attack on JNU still remains a mystery, people have been calling out on Delhi police for remaining a “mute spectators” as the heinous incident unfolded.
The University staff, besides students, have alleged that the Delhi police had known about the attack and didn’t do anything about the same.
The involvement of private security guards of the University has also been suspected in the incident. To note, to enter the University campus, one has to register their name and let the guards talk to the ones you wish to meet.
However, no such rules were taken into consideration when the culprits slip past the security both before and after wreaking havoc.
Though the students have claimed that the miscreants were “unknown ABVP goons”, the Delhi Police, again HAVE FAILED to identify them.
JNUSU vice-president Saket Moon has alleged that “The police have been in the campus since afternoon, but they have done nothing”.
Meanwhile, disgust by Delhi Police cowardly response to the incident, Delhi Police lawyer Rahul Mehra, took on Twitter to express his dismay on Delhi Police. “Hang my head in shame,” he wrote on Twitter.
As always, the incident has hiked the blame game among the political parties with opposition hitting on Centre and Center calling out on the opposition.
