Hours after Delhi Police said that it had identified as many as nine suspects in the recent violence at the Jawaharlal Nehru Univers(JNU), Union Minister and BJP leader Smriti Irani today said the left design in JNU has been unmasked.

Taking to Twitter Irani wrote: " Left design in JNU unmasked. They led mobs of mayhem, destroyed public property paid for by taxpayers, disallowed new students from being enrolled, used the campus as a political battleground."


Earlier in the day, the police released the pictures of nine people suspected of carrying out violence against JNU students and professors inside the university campus on January 5.

Among others, the Delhi police have named the JNU students' Union president Aishe Ghosh in the list of accused.

Of the nine suspects, seven belong to the Left-wing while the two are from the Right-wing affiliated student wing.


Addressing a presser, the Delhi Police’s special team head Joy Tirkey said that the four establishments which include SFI and AISA of the JNUSU are largely accountable for the violence.

Tirkey also mentioned that a particular WhatsApp group named 'Unity Against Left' was created ahead of the Sunday's violence and its admin is one of the accused in the violence.

On the other hand, the JNUSU Aishe refuted all the allegations and said, "We have not done anything wrong. We are not scared of the Delhi Police. We will stand by the law and take our movement ahead peacefully and democratically."
