Delhi Police unmasks the JNU attackers.
Delhi Police on Friday releases pictures of nine individual suspects for carrying out violence against JNU students and teachers last Sunday. Among the nine individuals, seven belong to the Left-wing while the remaining two are from the Right-wing. Aishe Ghosh, JNUSU president is also one of the suspects.
What the Police have to say?
Addressing a press conference, DCP (crime) Joy Tirkey, “Unfortunately the CCTV footages are not available to us as the server room was vandalized a day before. We have identified some people based on viral videos and other investigations.”
“The police have not detained anyone so far. We will serve notices to the identified people and ask them about their presence during the violence,” says DCP Tirkey.
DCP Joy Tirkey, who is probing the case, said a majority of the students wanted to register for the winter semester from January 1 to 5. But the Left-leaning students’ bodies were not allowing them to do so.
He also mentioned that a particular WhatsApp group named ‘Unity Against Left’ was formed ahead of the Sunday’s violence spree and its administrator is one of the accused in the violence.
However, JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh denies all the claims of Delhi Police. “I have full faith in the law & order of this country that investigation will be fair. I will get justice. But why is Delhi Police bias? My complaint has not been filed as an FIR. I did not assault anyone.”
“Delhi Police can do their inquiry. I also have evidence to show how I was attacked. We have not done anything wrong. We are not scared of the Delhi Police. All of us will stand by the law and take our movement ahead peacefully and democratically,” she adds further.
BJP leaders on evidence release.
Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said the Delhi Police’s ongoing probe into the January 5 violence in JNU has made it clear that students affiliated to left-wing bodies were involved in the incident.
“Police have brought reality in light. It is clear that left-wing students’ outfits are involved in the attack.” He also appeals to the agitating students to end the stir and allow the academic session to commence.
“Left design in JNU unmasked. They led mobs of mayhem, destroyed public property paid for by taxpayers, disallowed new students from being enrolled, used the campus as a political battleground.” Union Minister Smriti Irani claims after Delhi Police releases evidence of JNU attack.
