JNU violence: FIR against JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh for vandalism
New Delhi, Jan 08: JNU Students' Union president Aishe Ghosh, who was attacked by a masked, armed mob and received head injuries during Sunday's violence at Jawaharlal Nehru University, has been booked for vandalism.
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.
One complaint was lodged on January 3 for switching off the server while another complaint was registered on January 4 for vandalising the server room, police said.
JNUSU Vice President Saket Moon alleged that the administration is selectively targeting some students and denied any involvement in the vandalism of the server room.
Violence had broken out at JNU on Sunday night as masked men armed with sticks and rods attacked students and teachers and damaged property on the campus.
"I have been brutally beaten up by people wearing masks. I do not know. I was there with one of my activists when I was brutally beaten up. I am not even able to talk," the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) president said in the video.
At least 28 people, including Ghosh, were injured as chaos reigned on the campus for nearly two hours.
