A day after alleging that some students forcibly entered his house and confined his wife for several hours, Jawaharlal Nehru University vice chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar said that he had "forgiven" them and would not file a complaint with the police.
"While last night's violent behaviour by students in front my JNU residence is condemnable, neither me nor my wife will file a police complaint against the students. We have forgiven them. Wish them the best and hope they will reform and not repeat such acts in future," Mr Kumar tweeted.
Earlier on Thursday, the Jawaharlal Nehru University's Vice-Chancellor Jagadesh Kumar's residence was attacked on Monday by 200-300 JNU students who smashed the front gate and entered his house. Jagadesh Kumar took to Twitter and informed about the incident. He wrote," Few hundred students have broken into my residence at JNU and have confined my wife inside the house. She is alone at home and terrified. Very unfortunate".
Last week, the JNU students initiated a hunger strike against Vice-Chancellor Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar. The students were protesting against various policies of the administration including the new prospectus which is exclusionary in nature, the online entrance examination, and scuttling of deprivation points and reservation.
Furthermore, the students called for a Mass Relay Hunger Strike on 25 March. Details of the same were put on a facebook page.
