Ghosh also said that she has full faith in the law and order of this country and that she would get justice. Asserting that her complaint has not been filed as an FIR, she wanted to know why the Delhi police was “biased”.
“I have full faith in the law & order of this country that investigation will be fair. I will get justice. But why is Delhi Police bias? My complaint has not been filed as an FIR. I have not carried out any assault,” she said.
Speaking on the meeting with the MHRD secretary Amit Khare earlier today, the JNUSU President said that they have demanded that the varsity VC M Jagadesh Kumar be removed from his position.
“We demanded that JNU VC should be removed from his post immediately as he is not able to run the university. We need a VC that can help in a fresh beginning and can help in bringing normalcy at the campus,” she said.
“They have assured that they will have positive intervention in the matter and release a circular on the issue soon,” Ghosh added.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Police today said that nine suspects behind the JNU violence have been identified. Releasing the photos of the suspects, police shared the updates of the investigation so far into the incident of JNU violence. “A lot of misinformation related to these cases is being circulated,” said Delhi Police PRO, MS Randhawa.
Dismissing that the attack was from outside, the police said it was difficult for outsiders to enter the university. Police categorically blamed the Left students” organisation for the attack and the vandalism. Aishe Ghosh, the union president who was attacked that evening, has also been named as a suspect.
