Aishe to be interrogated today; 6 masked attackers identified

The SIT of Delhi Police says that the JNUSU president is not talking to the police, but is definitely speaking out through the media or other means

A police team has reached the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus to inquire about the nine people whose photos the crime branch had released on Friday in connection with the 5 January incident of violence. The police have prepared a list of questions, the answers of which will be asked to the accused including JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh.

Six masked attackers have been identified. All these are said to be students of which four are from the JNU and the other two are from the University of Delhi (DU).

The crime branch is seeing this as akin to cracking the case of mystery. However, they have not arrested anyone yet.

Do any of these students belong to the ABVP? Will they be arrested? The Special Investigation Team (SIT) is silent about this at the moment. It is believed that in a day or two, the SIT will find all that it needs to know about the incident.

The SIT set up to investigate the JNU violence will interrogate Aishe Ghosh, the president of the JNU Students Union, today. The SIT says that Aishe is not talking to the police, but is definitely speaking out through the media or other means.

Apart from Aishe, two other students have been called for questioning by the SIT on Monday. From all the results of the interrogations, SIT will try to know about the entire incident.

The SIT has called Akshat Awasthi and Rohit Shah, who appeared in the sting operation on Monday, for questioning too.

The SIT has come to know also about the girl who was wearing a checked shirt in a group of three people with sticks and rods. She studies at Daulatram College. She lives in Model Town and was in JNU that day. The SIT says that information about the student was received several days ago but it was necessary to establish the full identity.

Forensic identification will precede arrests. The SIT will get FSL to match the photos of masked assailants with those from their database of suspects and other students.

The SIT has received inputs from some outsiders. However, those identified in the investigation so far are all students of the JNU or DU. But it is believed that some outsiders might have come from neighbourhoods of Shahpur Jat, Ambedkar Nagar and Ghaziabad areas.

A fact-finding committee formed by the INC over the attack on JNU, in the meantime, has alleged that Vice-Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar was the “mastermind” of the incident of violence. The committee demanded immediate removal of the vice-chancellor and a criminal investigation against him.

Committee member Sushmita Dev said that the attack on the university on 5 January by masked people was “government-sponsored”.

After Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan yesterday, Udayanidhi, the leader of the DMK’s youth wing and son of MK Stalin, met Aishe Ghosh at the JNU campus.
