On Monday, she mentioned that she was attacked with multiple rods during the attack and called it an organised attack. She added,
It was an organised attack. They were singling out people and attacking. There is a clear nexus of JNU security and vandals. They did not intervene to stop violence. For last 4-5 days, some RSS-affiliated professors were promoting violence to break our movement. Are we wrong to ask for safety from the JNU and Delhi Police.
Ghosh also demanded resignation from the Vice-Chancellor and accused him of incompetency and added that the democratic culture of the university will not be suppressed by such incidents.
Apart from Ghosh, JNU’s vice president Saket Moon also added that the police responded two hours after the incident was reported and claimed that there was no security available for them.
Over 35 people were admitted in Safdurjung and AIIMS hospitals after the said attack on Sunday.
