    • A new hostel will soon come up at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) for the students belonging to the Northeast besides a regional convention centre in Delhi, Union minister Jitendra Singh said on Thursday.

      Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Purushottam Pathak also directed the Delhi Police to send a reminder to the city government seeking requisite sanctions to prosecute Kumar. The court passed the directions after police submitted that permission to prosecute Kumar and others has not been granted yet and the letter requesting sanction is pending with GNCTD.

      Shortly after Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar took over as VC of the JNU, in Jan 2016, he emphasised faculty and students should be known for their scientific and social contributions and it should not be in the news for the wrong reasons. Ironically, JNU has been in the news for the wrong reasons, thereafter.

      Anti national slogans were raise in the JNU campus on February 9 2016. Four days later Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested by Delhi Police under sedition charges.

      The Bollywood actor was seen standing with students as the demonstrators raised the slogan of "Jai Bhim-Jai Bhim". She did not issue any statement nor address the students. Deepika is currently in the national capital promoting her upcoming film 'Chhapaak'.

      The JNU administration had given the names of students union office bearers including its president Aishe Gosh in connection with the vandalism but police have not put her name or that of other students in the accused column of the FIRs.

      A pall of terror and fear prevails in Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University. It was not the same 'safe space', after about a 100-strong mob entered the campus, breaking and hitting everything that came their way. Students described that neither them, their teachers, cars, motorcycles and other property were spared.

      "Such violence on university campus is completely against the ethos of this country. No matter what the ideology or bent of mind, students cannot be targeted this way. Strictest punishment has to be meted out to these goons who have dared to enter the University," World Cup winning BJP MP Gambhir tweeted.

      Expressing solidarity with the JNU students, the protesters gathered near Ambedkar statute on Tank Bund after midnight on Sunday and raised slogans.

      Violence broke out at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Sunday night as masked men armed with sticks and rods attacked students and teachers and damaged property on the campus, prompting the administration to call in police which conducted a flag march. At least 28 people were injured in clashes as chaos reigned on the campus for nearly two hours.

      They said the three students, Pankaj Mishra, Vasker Vijay Mech and Ghosh, were questioned by the crime branch officers. They said that three other students -- Akshat Awasthi, Rohit Shah and Komal Sharma -- were absconding. Awasthi and Shah, who are first-year students of JNU, had featured in a sting operation conducted by a TV news channel.

      Having pushed through a resolution formula with the agitating students and the varsity administration, the officials are confident that students would choose to attend classes rather than boycott them.
