Central govt seeks report from JNU on campus violence


New Delhi, April 12

The Union Ministry of Education has sought a report from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) regarding a clash between student groups on Ram Navami, officials said today. “A formal report has been sought about the clash between student groups on the occasion of Ram Navami and the unrest on campus,” they added.

Around 20 students were injured in the clash between two groups of students at the JNU’s Kaveri Hostel on Sunday allegedly over serving of non-vegetarian food on Ram Navami in the mess. Both groups have lodged police complaints against each other. The JNU authorities claimed the violence took place after some students objected to a ‘havan’, an assertion also made by the RSS-affiliate ABVP.

The administration also warned students of disciplinary action if they were found indulging in violence on the campus. —
