Aishe Ghosh, president of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union, met Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan at Delhi's Kerala House on Saturday. Vijayan talked to Ghosh and gift her a book called 'Halla Bol'- a biography of activist, actor and director Safdar Hashmi. Ghosh's meeting with Vijayan comes a day after she was named as one of the suspects in the JNU violence case that left 35 people injured. Ghosh, who was injured during the violence that took place in the campus on January 5, has denied any role in the violence.
The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) on Friday accused the Delhi Police of speaking the language of the varsity's vice-chancellor and said those who were assaulted have been "implicated as suspects". The JNUSU alleged that the "whole point of this exercise is to save the ABVP and deflect attention from the spine chilling horrors perpetrated by right-wing hooligans", particularly on January 5.
The union's statement comes after the police on Friday released pictures of nine suspects in the JNU violence case and claimed JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh was one of them, five days after a masked mob assaulted students on the varsity's campus, leaving 35 injured, including her.
The Delhi Police on Friday released pictures of nine suspects in the JNU violence case and claimed JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh, a member Students' Federation of India, was one of them. Of the nine, seven belong to left-leaning student organisations while two are affiliated to a "right-wing students'' body, police said.
On Friday, members of the Left leaning students' outfits and the ABVP held protests at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Friday against the January 5 violence on the campus. While the RSS-affiliated ABVP took out a silent protest march inside the university premises, students belonging to the Left-leaning outfits organsied a poster making event and formed a human chain.
While the protests were silent with no sloganeering, there was heavy deployment of police personnel in plain clothes to prevent any untoward incident.
