The FIR was registered on January 5 based on a complaint filed by the JNU administration.This is one of the three FIRs that have been filed in connection with the JNU violence. This comes after the students at JNU were attacked with iron rods by a masked mob. It has been almost two days since the students were attacked but no arrests have been made by the Delhi Police.

JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh was amongst 30 others who were beaten and injured by masked goons armed with rods and sticks. She stated that nobody helped the students and the campus security left when the violence began. Several reports have stated that the RSS-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) is behind the Sunday violence. However, in a recent update the Hindu Raksha Dal, a fringe extremist group, has taken responsibility for the attack.

They did not intervene to stop violence. Some complaints have already been filed. I will file another FIR. JNU shouldn't be seen in isolation, it's a targeted attack on students and dissenting voices by the government.
