Registration Extended after Violence
Earlier on 5th January 2020, the last day of winter session registration, violence broke out on campus as masked mob attacked students and faculty members of the university in the evening. The attack saw JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh get serious injuries for which she was treated at AIIMS. Media reports have claimed that the masked mob consisted of several members of ABVP – the student wing of RSS and BJP. On the other hand, counter allegations have also been levelled by BJP and others suggest that Left Union students indulged in violence and damaged the CIS Centre and Server Room to stop registration process as part of their anti-fee hike protests.
