“We want the university VC to take a stand like Jadavpur University and AMU that police will not come on campus,” JNU Students Union Vice President Shehla Rashid Shora said.
The JNU Teachers Association (JNUTA) in an emergent meeting held yesterday passed a resolution demanding that the internal mechanism of the university should be allowed to work but only after re-construction of the inquiry panel. JNUTA president Ajay Patnaik said, “We want the university to take a stand and get these charges dropped.”
Members of ABVP yesterday alleged that five students who have surfaced on the campus, were hiding in JNU professors' residences. “We are very certain that these students are hiding in residences of professors on campus. We demand an enquiry into the same.” Saurabh Kumar Sharma, Joint Secretary of JNUSU said.
