FIR against unknown ABVP students

The Delhi Police on Monday said they have registered a first information report (FIR) against unknown Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members in connection with Sunday’s clash at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

At least six students were hurt in a fight between two student groups over a hostel mess serving chicken for dinner on Ram Navmi.

On Monday, a group of students from the Jawaharlal Nehru Students Union (JNUSU), Students’ Federation of India (SFI), Democratic Students’ Federation, and All India Students’ Association filed a complaint with the Deputy Police Commissioner (Southwest), Manoj C. He went on to say that they filed the FIR under sections of the Indian Penal Code such as 323 (voluntarily causing harm), 341 (wrongful restraint), 506 (criminal intimidation), and 34 (criminal intimidation) (common intention). “An additional investigation is being conducted to gather factual, scientific data and identify the perpetrators.”

According to Manoj C, ABVP students have also been informed that they will be filing a complaint on Monday. “As soon as the same is received, the relevant legal action will be done.”

JNUSU president and SFI member Aishe Ghosh said on Sunday that AVBP members caused a ruckus and beat inmates of the Kaveri Hostel mess over the cooking of chicken.

Members of Left-wing student organizations, according to the ABVP, disrupted a Ram Navmi devotional ritual by chanting slogans. Leftists protested outside the Vasant Kunj police station until late Sunday night, demanding to meet Manoj C.

Members of the AVBP, according to students, first objected to chicken being served as part of the dinner menu, then assaulted members of the mess committee.

“On Sunday, non-vegetarian cuisine is provided for non-vegetarian students, while paneer is prepared for vegetarian students, according to the pre-determined mess menu.” However, ABVP students objected to the preparation of non-vegetarian meals on Ram Navmi. “They said they were planning a Ram Navmi event around the hostel and that no non-vegetarian food would be served,” a first-year P.H.D.student who did not want to be identified said.

Some ABVP members objected when the mess committee members were collecting meat from a vendor around 4 p.m., he added.

Madhurima Kundu, the secretary of the JNUSU, said that ABVP members assaulted her. Stone-throwing charges were also made, but they could not be confirmed.

No ABVP members were involved, according to Rohit Kumar, president of the JNU section. He claimed that some Kaveri Hostel inmates planned a Ram Navmi puja on Sunday, but that it was stopped by members of left-wing organizations. “It had been three days since the puja poster was put up. Since then, some JNUSU members and left-leaning organizations have stated that the event will not be held on campus. “The puja had to be postponed because students were raising protests,” Kumar explained. He went on to say that the ABVP was merely there to show support for the youngsters who were doing the prayers.

ABVP members produced a “violent atmosphere” in Kaveri Hostel, according to the JNUSU, which is controlled by Left-wing groups. “They are pressuring and criticizing the mess committee to revise the dinner menu to exclude all non-vegetarian items.” The menu includes vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, so students can eat what they choose.”

Despite the fact that the menu for April 10 had been pre-determined by the committee through hostel general body meetings, a group of persons unilaterally ordered the mess manager not to prepare chicken on Sunday, according to a letter sent to the dean on Sunday.

“Without telling the mess and hostel committees, the mess manager consented. The chicken salesman was verbally harassed, threatened, and manhandled on his way to the Kaveri Hostel. The letter stated that “students from outside Kaveri Hostel (non-residents) verbally harassed and physically assaulted hostel committee members.”
