JNU Registrar Bhupinder Zutshi has claimed that JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar had
objected to cancellation of permission for the controversial event in support of terrorist Afzal Guru.
Kanhaiya Kumar was against the authorities’ decision to cancel permission of the
February 9 event during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised revealed by
Bhupinder Zutshi. Kanhaiya Kumar called up JNU Registrar Bhupinder Zutshi and objected
decision to withdraw the Afzal Guru event permission.
Zutshi told the committee that “I had called a meeting of JNSU in my office at 3 pm on
February 9 to discuss the route for the new bus acquired by JNU for disabled students.
Kanhaiya Kumar and Rama Naga reached first. Around 3 pm, we had a discussion on the bus route. After 10 minutes, Saurav Sharma also came. We all discussed the bus route for 10
minutes,” he said. “Sharma later showed me a pamphlet regarding the ‘cultural event’ on
judicial killing of Afzal Guru’ and said some of the students are organizing this event
today (February 9, 2016) at 5 pm at Sabarmati Dhaba,”
Kanhaiya called the Registrar on objecting to the cancellation. The five-member
committee which has been granted two extensions for submitting its report is expected to
come up with its recommendations by March 11.
Students including Kanhaiya, have already refused to depose before the committee
demanding that the preliminary inquiry was conducted in an absurd manner and students
suspended without questioning. The students have been demanding that committee starts its
enquiry afresh, a demand which has been ruled out by the university. Zutshi, is also
under criticism from a section of students and teachers for allegedly mishandling the
