Violence at JNU

The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) has alleged that the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members attacked the mess secretary and stopped the staff from serving meat dishes in the hostel.

Meanwhile, the ABVP, claimed that Members of left organizations tried to stop a Ram Navami Pooja from being organized in the hostel.

Both sides have accused each other of pelting stones and injuring their members. Meanwhile, the police have been called to the campus.


Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southwest) Manoj C confirmed that some students have sustained injuries.

“There is no violence as of now. A protest was held which is over. We are all positioned here with our team. At the request of the university, we have come here. We are trying to maintain peace,” he said.

Violence over food

After a scuffle broke out between two groups, Ph.D. student & former vice president of JNUSU, Sarika said that ABVP had gone on the rampage in JNU as other students opposed their attempt to ban non-veg food. ’50 to 60 people are injured,’ she added.


The ABVP rejected the claims saying that the “Leftists” disrupted a puja in the hostel.

“Some common students had organized a pooja and havan program on the auspicious occasion of Ram Navami at Kaveri hostel.

“This pooja was joined by a large number of common students of JNU. The Leftists came to object, obstruct and prevent the pooja from happening. They have created a false ruckus on the issue of ‘Right to Food’ (Non-Vegetarian Food),” they said.
