JNU cancels protest against the 'judicial killing of Afzal Guru'
New Delhi, Feb 10: JNU campus turned into battle ground on Tuesday, Feb 10 as Left-oriented students' group planned to organise a cultural program and a protest march to protest against the 'Judicial Killing of Afzal Guru' and also to dislplay solidarity with Kashmiri migrants who are struggling at varsity's Sabarmati Dhaba.
Later, the event was foiled by the varsity authority as they feared that the agitation march might disrupt peace in the Institution.
The students had posted posters across the JNU campus inviting students to march in protest. The ABVP members in the campus raised objection against event, even as writing a letter to the Vice Chancellor demanding cancellation of the protest march.
Jagdeesh Kumar, JNU, VC said to media that "earlier we were informed by the student that its going to be a cultural program but later we learnt that it was not only a cultural program but also a protest march on controversial issue.
"As this kind of protest march might hinder the peace and calm in college campus and it is our responsibility to look over it," he concluded.
Meanwhile, the students started protesting against the educational authority for canceling the march.
A senior police official said " we were called by the university so that the law and order not being violated during the protest and till now no untoward incidents took place in the campus."
