HRD says no naxal-related activity in DU, JNU


New Delhi, Apr 6: No naxal-related activities have been reported among the students of Delhi University and Jawaharlal Nehru University, the HRD Ministry has said.

The statement was made by Minister of State for HRD, Mahendra Nath Pandey in response to a written question in Rajya Sabha.


"JNU and DU have informed the government that no naxal-related activities have been reported among the students. DU has further clarified that the situation has not changed subsequent to the indictment of one of its Assistant Professors," he said.

DU Professor G N Saibaba was last month awarded life imprisonment for links with a Maoist front and carrying out "anti-national" activities.

The government's statement comes against the backdrop of allegations by several political leaders that naxal-related activities were being carried out in universities like JNU.

JNU has been at the centre of controversy after its students organised an event last year against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru during which alleged 'anti-national' slogans were raised.
