JNU sends internal panel report on Afzal Guru event to police anti-terror wing

The Jawaharlal Nehru University has sent the report filed by its internal investigative panel on the 9 February Afzal Guru event to the Delhi police's anti-terror wing which is investigating the sedition cases against Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya.

The report was sent by JNU's chief proctor AP Dimri on investigating officer Umesh Barthwal's request.

Students and teachers at JNU had boycotted the internal investigation, calling it unrepresentative. Kanhaiya, Umar and 18 other JNU students began an indefinite hunger strike on Wednesday evening, demanding the withdrawal of the report and the punishments given to them on its basis, according to The Telegraph.

"The report was sent following their (police's) request. We haven't contacted them for any information," said vice-chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar. The full report is yet to be made public.

Based on the internal inquiry panel report, three students, including Umar and Anirban, have been rusticated for varying terms, two were asked to leave their hostels, two academics from other Delhi universities were barred from entering JNU and 14 others, including Kanhaiya, were fined. Mujeeb Gattoo, one of the rusticated students, was the only JNU student found to have raised anti-India slogans at the 9 February event, along with others who couldn't be identified.
