The students protested the whole night and some even turned up this morning, said sources, adding that Umar Khalid of JNU and Shehla Rashid Shora JNU Students’ Union (JNUSU) vice president too landed on the campus. Following which there are fears of the protest spilling over.
On Sunday too several local leaders were seen moving around the protest site, standing outside the gate, to stoke more trouble on the campus by backing the protesting the agitating students. However, with entry to outsiders completely blocked, none were allowed inside.
IE reports: Proctor Mehtab Alam said police did not have permission to enter the campus. “Police were told not go inside gate number 4, but they still entered. I got to know this had happened when a student called me. The students were feeling threatened because they thought there would be a raid, but there was nothing like that. The police had apparently told the students they had permission, which was not true. In fact, when I asked them later how they had entered, they apologised profusely,” said Alam.
However, as reported by IE, Mandeep Singh Randhawa, DCP (south east) said, “The beat staff had gone to meet the proctor. There was no confusion. We did not conduct any raid and neither did anyone videograph in the hostels. All allegations are false.”
