Jawaharlal Nehru University’s vice chancellor on Wednesday alleged “outsiders” were present at a campus event where participants on February 9 allegedly shouted slogans against India and supported Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

“The video which is with the JNU enquiry committee does show that there were outsiders were present at the event,” said M Jagadesh Kumar at a press conference.

Kumar said the enquiry committee will submit its report on February 25 after going through prima facia evidence recovered from university CCTV cameras.

Kumar and JNU registrar Bhupider Zutschi said the university had allowed police to enter the campus because sedition charges had been levelled against students after the February 9 event. Eight students have been barred from the university for the event.

He also appealed to all political parties to stay away from campus.

“We can solve the issue internally so I appeal to all to stay away from the campus,” said Kumar.
