Hindu Raksha Dal convenor Pinky Chaudhary has claimed responsibility for the violence that was unleashed on the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus on Sunday.
“JNU is a hotbed of anti-national activities, we can’t tolerate this. We take full responsibility of the attack in JNU and would like to say that they were our workers,” Chaudhary told news agency ANI.
Masked men and women carrying rods, sticks and sledgehammers unleashed violence in the JNU campus on Sunday. Students, teachers were attacked by the masked mob as well as campus property was also damaged.
At least 26 people, including JNU Students’ Union (JNUSU) president Aishe Ghosh, were in the violence that continued for nearly two hours in the JNU campus.
As per eyewitnesses and many of those who got injured in the brutal violence, the attack was carried out by mostly outsiders and belonged to the ABVP (Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad). However, the RSS student outfit has denied the charge.
