Shocked, anguished at attack in JNU campus: state NSUI

DIMAPUR, JAN 6 (NPN) | Publish Date: 1/6/2020 12:16:01 PM IST

National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) Nagaland unit has expressed its deep shock and anguish over the “dastardly” attack allegedly by ABVP goons inside Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus in New Delhi on Sunday night. 

The student body, affiliated to the Congress party, condemned the act of ABVP goons for allegedly going on a rampage inside the campus armed with rods, sticks and stones with their faces covered under the cover of darkness while chanting provocative slogans like “Desh ke gadaron ko goli maro salon ko” (shoot anti-nationals).

Terming the attack on JNU students and faculties as an attack on the entire student community of India, NSUI Nagaland alleged that the ABVP goons mercilessly thrashed even the girl students, and wanted to know if this was what “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi had meant. 

The union also expressed its shock at the apathy of Delhi Police which allegedly did absolutely nothing to contain the situation. This only signified the nexus between the perpetrators and the police who were directly under the Union home ministry, it added.

Expressing its sympathy and support to JNU students and faculties at this hour of grief, NSUI Nagaland appealed to the authority concerned to fast-track the case to ensure speedy justice to the victims and also ensure stringent action against the perpetrators so that this type of “thuggery” did not become a precedent. This was stated in a press release by its president X Chophika Sumi.
