Outsider tries to assault Kanhaiya on JNU campus

New Delhi: A man allegedly tried to attack JNU Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar on Thursday evening.

“I told him that I want to talk to him and in the meantime his bouncers came. He has abused the nation. He wants to become a leader by staying in jail. He raised slogans against India. He has tarnished the image of Indian Army and the country,” the man who attacked Kanhaiya told the media.

Meanwhile, a case has been registered against Kanhaiya in the Kanpur civil court for giving objectionable statement against Army personnel.

Speaking at a student’s gathering on International Women’s Day, Kanhaiya alleged that the Indian Army personnel have committed atrocities against women in Jammu and Kashmir.

“No matter how much you try to stop us, we will speak up against human rights violations. We will raise our voice against AFSPA. While we have a lot of respect for our soldiers, we will still talk about the fact that in Kashmir women are raped by security personnel,” Kanhaiya said on Tuesday.

The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha had yesterday filed a complaint in the Vasant Vihar Police Station against Kanhaiya and JNU professor Nivedita Menon, saying they have made ‘anti-national’ statements in the aftermath of February 9 event in the JNU campus. (ANI)
