Taking serious cognisance of the appeal made by the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) calling upon victims of northeast Delhi to take shelter in the University’s campus, the varsity’s administration on Friday (February 28) warned the students union against providing shelter to the victims of the northeast Delhi violence on the campus.
In a notice, JNU Registrar Pramod Kumar warned of disciplinary action against students found involved in any such efforts.
“You are strictly advised against any such activity, failing which appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against you. You are also advised to uphold the need to keep an educational institution like JNU a congenial space for study and research,” he said.
The JNUSU has “no legal right to make the JNU campus a shelter,” the notice further said.
“You are hereby warned that you will be held responsible for any inconvenience or insecurity caused to JNU residents,” he added.
According to the notice, the JNU administration had received multiple calls from the campus residents who said they were feeling insecure due to the call given by the JNUSU.
Meanwhile, Delhi University students took out a peace march on the campus for communal harmony.
Many students boycotted classes to express solidarity with the victims of the communal violence in northeast Delhi, which has claimed at least 42 lives and left over 200 injured so far.
