Delhi Police names Aishe Ghosh and others for attack at JNU hostel
New Delhi : The Delhi Police has released the pictures of nine suspects involved in the attack on hostel last week. The names reveal most members of the Left-controlled students' union.
Specifically focusing on the clashes which took place in the University before Sunday over the increased hostel fees, Delhi Police officials named Chunchun Kumar, Pankaj Mishra, Aishe Ghosh, Waskar Vijay, Sucheta Talukdar, Priya Ranjan, Dolan Sawant, Yogendra Bhardwaj and Vikas Patel.
Aishe Ghosh is the president of the Left-controlled JNU students' union while Yogendra Bhardwaj and Vikas Patel are said to be members of the BJP-linked Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad or ABVP.
The cops said that the members of Left groups damaged server room with a motive to stop online registrations.
They admitted difficulties in identifying the culprits due to lack of evidences and video footage.
Aishe Ghosh in her defense said that she was not there to do the violence, instead she had gone there to stop the violence. "I was not wearing any masks, I have done no wrong... I still have my blood soaked clothes," she said.
The two cases against Aishe Ghosh and other left students for the clashes on Friday and Saturday were filed by the police within a span of four minutes on Sunday evening, shortly after she was taken to hospital bleeding from an attack by a masked mob.
