JNU warns of ‘strict action’ against outsiders staying in student hostels
Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) vice-chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar on Saturday blamed outsiders for last Sunday’s violence inside the campus when a masked mob assaulted and injured many students and teachers. “This is a problem that many illegal students are staying in hostels. They could be outsiders. They may be participating in any possible violence because they have nothing to do with the university,” Jagadesh said. “The terror created by some of the activist students went to such an extent that many of our students had to leave the hostels. From the past several days, we have enhanced security in the campus to make sure that innocent students are not hurt,” he said while interacting with students.
