In the latest update regarding the JNU violence, the CPI(M) General Secy Sitaram Yechury stated that it was a 'pre-planned attack' from outsiders. The party further slammed JNU admin's delayed response to violence. "For 5 hrs nearly, the VC not responding & not asking police to come in&restore normalcy makes him also complicit in this attack", he said.
