The Center has called for a report on the incident of student clashes at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). This has been informed by the central administration today. The Union Ministry of Education has been asked to submit a report on the incident of student clashes that took place at the university on the occasion of Ramnabami. Afzal Ahmed, a meat supplier at JNU’s Kaberi Hostel Mess, claimed that some students had banned the supply of meat at the hostel in Ramnabami.
JNU was heated on Sunday centering on serving non-vegetarian food on Ramnabami day. The leftist student organization clashed with members of the student organization ABVP. At least 20 students were injured. The report of the incident has been summoned. A senior education ministry official said: “The report has been summoned as per administrative rules. Students’ clashes and campus unrest have been reported on the occasion of Ramnabami.
The two sides have lodged a complaint with the police against each other in connection with the clash. According to Afzal, every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, meat is eaten at Kaberi Hostel. In those days, Afzal used to supply 250 to 300 kilograms of meat. He also said that he had taken the meat to the Kaberi hostel. But seeing the noise, he returned, fearing that the situation might get worse.
