Calling for an end to the breach of peace on the campus, students of Delhi University asked the administration to take the action against the law student accused of assaulting a guest faculty member. They held a march in North Campus on Tuesday.
On February 20, a guest faculty member of DU’s Law Faculty was allegedly attacked by a student outside the campus. The teacher had reportedly raised questions on the veracity of a Whatsapp video shown to him by the student. The video allegedly contained representations of the Pulwama attack.
Calling it a “shameful incident”, a group of students under ‘DU Progressive Unity’ banner came out to protest the attack claiming that the teacher was “beaten up and manhandled by some students who are affiliated to ABVP,“.
The protest was also joined by former president of DUTA, Nandita Narain, who said, “Had the Vice-Chancellor taken a strong action in the past, misguided students¬†may not have been emboldened to engage in such a violent act.”
ABVP, however, denied any involvement in the alleged attack on the teacher.
