5 times JNU made headlines for 'nefarious purposes'

The central university situated in the heart of Delhi has made headlines for unconventional reasons many times. Here's a look at a few

On Sunday night, left and ABVP students clashed, leaving many injured. The university is not unfamiliar with controversies.

Here are times JNU made headlines for unconventional reasons

In 2013, in a gruesome incident an undergraduate student of the School of Languages, Literature and Cultural Studies, hit his female friend with an axe on the head. Immediately after the boy, who was carrying a country made gun with him, nicked himself on the neck, having consumed poison earlier. The boy died, the girl survived.

On February 09, 2016 a gathering was organised by certain left student organisations. The public meeting was held on the anniversary of Afzal Guru's hanging in 2003. ABVP students protested against the event, and clashes ensued. A group of individuals allegedly raised anti-India slogans, on the basis of which, the police filed a sedition case against the then JNUSU president, Kanhaiya Kumar. Apart from Kumar, sedition cases were also filed against Anirban Bhattacharya and Umar Khalid.

After being released from jail, Kanhaiya delivered a speech late at night which was attended by thousands, launching his political career.

Shortly after, BJP leader Gyan Dev Ahuja, alleged that the university was in fact a sex den and 50% of the rapes and molestation of women in Delhi were committed by students of JNU. He added further that 3,000 condoms and 2,000 bottles of liquor could be found each day in the campus. The university is 8,000 students strong as of 2022.

That wasn't the only time JNU and condoms were used in the same sentence. In 2005, JNU got its first condom vending machine. Many Delhiites and students residing in Delhi used to make trips to the campus to "just look" at the machines.

In November 2020, the JNU admin filed a case against unknown individuals for vandalising the not yet unveiled statue of Vivekananda.

And earlier that year, before Covid was a perceptible threat, in January, around a hundred masked 'intruders' entered the university and beat up students. JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh was injured in the attack. No action against the perpetrators has been taken yet.
