A section of JNU teachers, students sympathise Naxal elements: RSS

New Delhi [India], Apr 30 (ANI): The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Sunday alleged that a section of teachers and students in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) are actively sympathising with 'extremist elements'. RSS leader Rakesh Sinha's comment came after an assistant professor at JNU's car was vandalised by an unknown person and stones were pelted at his house for condoling Sukma and Kupwara killing. "There is a section of teachers and students in JNU who have sympathies with naxal elements. In fact they give ideological legitimacy and they are also insensitive. From Dantewada to Sukma, they appreciated naxals and celebrated the killing of CRPF personnel," Sinha told ANI. Professor Buddha Singh who teaches computer science at JNU on Saturday posted pictures of his car and claimed that he was 'rewarded' for organising a condolence meeting for CRPF personnel killed by Maoists in Sukma.

The condolence meet was held at the JNU's Sabarmati Dhaba. Meanwhile, Delhi police has registered an FIR, under section 427 of the Indian Penal Code at the Vasant Kunj police station and investigations are underway. (ANI)
