Details: CUJ Vice-Chancellor denies any attack on students

However, CUJ Vice-Chancellor Professor Ashok Aima denied any attack on students from Kerala and Tamil Nadu, adding they have filed a police complaint against the website hackers to trace them.

"These students (from Kerala) belong to the AISF and SFI. All they want is free food, free liquor, and free drugs... nobody questions them," he said.

Fact: Kerala Chief Secretary writes to Jammu & Kashmir counterpart

Kerala Chief Secretary Tom Jose has written to his Jammu & Kashmir counterpart, seeking steps to ensure the safety of Kerala students. According to a spokesman for Kerala Chief Minister's office, two students of CUJ who belong to Kerala informed the CMO about the matter.

According to V-C Aima, Central University of Jammu has nearly 1,500 students and nearly 60-65% of them are Muslims, "including those from Kashmir and Kerala".

Putting the number of students belong to Kerala at 70-80, the Vice-Chancellor said, "They are very volatile; they are hardcore members of AISF and Leftist movement."

Fact: Hackers call themselves 'Kerala Cyber Warriors'

Calling themselves "Kerala Cyber Warriors", the hackers of the CUJ website said their action is in protest of the alleged attack on Kerala students by some "brainless ABVP-RSS" activists in Jammu, and "labeling them as beef eaters, JNU sympathizers, anti-nationals."
