  • The high court directive came while disposing a PIL that advocate Amit Sahni had filed seeking a direction to the Delhi Police Commissioner to lift restrictions on the Kalindi Kunj-Shaheen Bagh stretch and Okhla underpass, which were closed on December 15, 2019, following the protests against CAA.

    They said the three students, Pankaj Mishra, Vasker Vijay Mech and Ghosh, were questioned by the crime branch officers. They said that three other students -- Akshat Awasthi, Rohit Shah and Komal Sharma -- were absconding. Awasthi and Shah, who are first-year students of JNU, had featured in a sting operation conducted by a TV news channel.

    . The registrar issued a statement on Monday which alleged JNUTA violated service contracts of teachers and it was the fundamental right of JNU students to attend classes and the teachers union’s action reflected “intention to disrupt normal functioning of the university”.

    Having pushed through a resolution formula with the agitating students and the varsity administration, the officials are confident that students would choose to attend classes rather than boycott them.

    Responding to a query of reporters on the January 5 violence on Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Irani said, "Someone who breaks a server or creates hurdles in an educational institution should understand that it runs on the money of Indian taxpayers and harms their interest".

    "In JNU, some boys had raised anti-national slogans. They indulged in slogans like' Bharat tera tukde ho ek hazar, inshallaha, inshallaha'....Should they not be put in jails?" the BJP chief asked a public meeting in Madhya Pradesh's Jabalpur on Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which has stirred the politics in the country.

    "We observe with dismay that in the name of student politics, a disruptive far-left agenda is being pursued. The recent turn of events in campuses from JNU to Jamia, from AMU to Jadavpur alarms us to the deteriorating academic environment due to the shenanigans of a small coterie of left-wing activists," the academicians wrote to the prime minister.

    The Congress had appointed a four-member fact-finding committee to carry out a detailed inquiry into the violence at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

    Referring to the recent violence at the JNU campus, Adityanath said, "Leftist groups created an atmosphere of violence by resorting to lies, but Delhi Police has unearthed the conspiracy they had hatched to disrupt the examination process at JNU."

    The Centre uploaded the gazette notification for the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act, ensuring the Act comes into play with immediate effect. This has been seen as a defiant move by the government. PM Modi launched the counter campaign where he stated, #IndiaSupportsCAA as CAA is about giving citizenship to persecuted refugees & not denying it.

    "I would like to ask the Congress and the tukde tukde gang whether Rohingyas, Pakistani infiltrators should be given citizenship? And should Hindu and Sikh refugees from Pakistan be denied citizenship? If they have courage, they should answer in yes or no," Singh said.
