JNU Professor Alleges His Car Vandalised For ‘Supporting Martyrs’

The police said that the deceased was probably working as a labourer or security guard on the campus.

Dr Buddha Singh, an assistant professor at Jawaharlal Nehru University’s (JNU) School of Computer and System Science (SC & SS) , has alleged that some people vandalised his car and threw stones at his house for organising an event on the campus to condole the death of CRPF jawans in Sukma and Kupwara.

In a statement to PTI, he said

Dr Buddha Singh, Assistant Professor, JNU I had parked my car near Periyar hostel, which is opposite to the students’ union office. I do not suspect anyone, but I have filed a case at Vasant Kunj police station.

Speaking to The Quint, Mohit K Pandey, JNUSU President, said the authorities should investigate the alleged vandalism but added that there is no link between the incident and the condolence meet that was held for the martyrs.

Mohit Pandey, President, JNUSUThe condolence meet had taken place peacefully without any disturbances. There is no connection of the alleged vandalism to the condolence meet whatsoever. All this is being done to continue the propaganda against JNU students, especially in the light of us having filed a police complaint against 2 websites spreading fake news about JNU. These allegations by Buddha Singh are to counter that. Who knows, maybe they have done this vandalism themselves to make a point.

Delhi Police sources confirmed that a non-cognisable report has been registered in connection with the matter, which means that the complainant can claim insurance for the damage caused.

In a separate statement, Pandey also said that “the RSS always resorts to such tactics to divert attention, so that tough questions are not put to Home Minister Rajnath Singh.”
