1. ‘Don’t abuse PM Modi’: 15-yr-old Ludhiana activist challenges Kanhaiya :

A 15-year-old girl, who was honoured during Republic Day for her contribution to Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, has challenged Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar for open debate over freedom of expression.

She also advised Kanhayia Kumar to think before making any statement and to avoid using abusive language against the Prime Minister who was elected by the citizens of India.

Jhanvi Behal who invited Kanhaiya for debate is a student of DAV Public School, Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar. She is also an active member of an NGO Raksha Jyoti Foundation and was honoured on Republic Day for her contribution in many projects including Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.


While Talking to Hindustan Times Jahnavi behal said the constitution gives us freedom to express, but it does not mean that we can cross limits. Kanhayia Kumar and others have been misusing the fundamental right for their political gain.

“What has happened in JNU campus in the name freedom of expression is not tolerable for any Indian. The students were raising anti-India slogans, when armymen were sacrificing their lives while fighting against Pakistan sponsored terrorists, ”said Jahnavi.

“The student leaders for their political gain have been indulged in mud-sledging and using abusing language against Prime Minister, who is elected by citizens of India. Their act will malign the image of India in whole world,” she added.


Jhanvi Behal has raised several public issues in the past. Recently, she had filed a writ in Punjab and Haryana High court against adult movies and porn content on social networking sites.

She also appeared in the court in her school dress. The high court had pronounced judgment in her favour. She had also taken the matter of road blockage of various organizations to court.




2. Top JNU panel recommends rustication of Kanhaiya, 4 others :

New Delhi: A high-level committee of JNU has recommended rustication of Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya and two other students for their alleged role in a controversial event last month at which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.

Sources, however, said a decision on the recommendation by the panel will be taken by Vice Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar and Chief Proctor A Dimri after a thorough scrutiny of the suggestions.

A meeting of the university's top brass chaired by the Vice Chancellor on Monday discussed the report following which the varsity issued show-cause notice to 21 students including Kanhaiya and Umar, who were found guilty of having violated university rules and discipline norms.

The committee was formed on February 10 to probe the event organised to protest hanging of Afzal Guru, the Parliament attack convict. Kanhaiya, Umar and Anirban were arrested on charges of sedition in connection with the programme. Kanhaiya was released on bail from Tihar on March 3 while Umar and Anirban are still in judicial custody.

"The high-level committee has recommended rustication of five students after its investigation over a month's time. However, the final call in this regard will be taken by the Vice Chancellor and Proctor's office," sources said.

The university had on March 11 revoked the academic suspension of eight students including Kanhaiya after completion of the probe by the five-member panel. It was decided to keep them under suspension from academic activities till the inquiry was over. However, they were allowed to stay in the hostels.

The panel, which was granted three extensions before it finally submitted its report, also faced difficulties in the probe as students refused to depose before it demanding that the enquiry be constituted afresh.

The varsity, however, turned down the demand and maintained that the students will be given three chances to appear before the disciplinary committee and, if they fail to do so, the committee will finalise its recommendations on the basis of evidence available, eyewitness accounts, students' deposition, if any, and other material available on hand.

Sources said those issued show-cause notices include the eight students who were debarred earlier in connection with the case and ten others about whom police had sought information from the university.

Besides Kanhaiya, the eight suspended students included Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya, Ashutosh, Rama Naga, Anant Kumar, Shweta Raj and Aishwarya Adhikari.

The committee has faced a series of hiccups since its constitution. While the varsity's proctorial committee was first given the task to probe the issue, a day later it was replaced by a high-level committee.

The committee initially had three members but under pressure from teachers and students for broad basing it, the university had added two more members to the panel.

"There are standard provisions in the university rules to take action in such cases. The high-level inquiry committee's recommendations are based on the rules of discipline and proper conduct of JNU.

"On the basis of the responses from the students, a final decision in this regard will be taken," a varsity official said.
