New Delhi: Anagha Pradeep, a student union councilor, claimed that some boys were brought in from outside to fight, which resulted in two students being hurt on Thursday at Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi over a personal dispute. She also cited the absence of security guards on campus as a contributing factor.
JNU admin did not took any action
The councilor claimed that despite being warned about a disturbance in one of the dorms, neither the security office nor JNU administration took any action to safeguard the safety of the students. The councilor stated that JNU security had failed them “time and time again.”
According to Delhi Police, at 5 pm, a PCR call was received regarding a scuffle near Narmada Hostel on the JNU campus. When the police team reached the spot, it was found that there was a fight between two groups over some personal issue in which two students were injured.
