The claim was part of a report by a fact-finding committee set up by Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

The Congress Sunday alleged JNU Vice-Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar was the “mastermind” behind the January 5 violence at the varsity, and demanded he be dismissed and a criminal investigation initiated against him.

The claim was part of a report by a fact-finding committee set up by Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

The report, submitted by a team led by Sushmita Dev, claimed the violence was pre-meditated and aimed at intimidating students and faculty. “There is every reason to believe the mob... was from Right-wing factions,” the report alleged, and claimed “the role of the V-C... points to connivance and complicity with attackers”.
