Proctorial committee to probe event on Afzal Guru: JNU VC

New Delhi, Feb. 10 (ANI): Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Vice Chancellor M. Jagdish Kumar on Wednesday said a proctorial committee would look into the matter of violent clashes between two students groups last night after an argument over the capital punishment to Afzal Guru.

“A proctorial committee which will look into this and take view of the incident, we can’t give you a time frame, the committee will look into the matter and decide what to do,” Kumar told reporters here.

The varsity witnessed violent clashes between two students groups last night over this programme following which the police personnel were deployed on duty to maintain the law and order situation in the campus.

The students affiliated to the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) had also staged a protest outside the office of the Vice Chancellor today to vent their ire over a programme describing the execution of 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru as ‘judicial killing’.

The incident was followed by the cultural evening organised at the Sabarmati Dhaba by ten students, who were earlier members of the Democratic Students’ Union (DSU).

While the organisers originally got the permission to hold this event, it was withdrawn after the ABVP complained to the administration. The ABVP had called for a protest outside the 24×7 dhaba opposite the venue, against the “anti-national” activity in the campus.

The ABVP has also demanded that the ten students behind the event must be rusticated with immediate effect. (ANI)
