Even 10 days after the attack on the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus by masked assailants, Delhi Police have been unable to arrest any attacker, and are currently facing tough questions.

Meanwhile, on Monday, Delhi Police questioned three students, including JNU Students’ Union president Aishe Ghosh, in this matter and recorded their statements. These three students are among the nine ‘suspects’ whose photographs were recently released by Delhi Police.

The masked woman assailant seen in the JNU attack videos along with two other masked persons has now been identified as Komal Sharma, a member of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and a student of Delhi University. Delhi Police has sent a notice to Sharma for questioning in the matter.

The Special Investigation Team involved in the JNU attack inquiry has identified 44 out of 60 people who were part of the WhatsApp group ‘Unity Against Left’, formed to conspire for violence and has summoned them for questioning by sending notices to all of them.

Apart from this, notices have been sent to JNU student Akshat Awasthi, who was seen in a TV news channel sting, and to another student named Rohit Shah, and both have been asked to be part of the inquiry into the matter. 

However, Delhi Police have not arrested Hindu Raksha Dal president Pinky Chaudhary, who claimed responsibility for the attack or any member of his group till now.

A hearing into the JNU attack was held in the Delhi High Court on Monday. The High Court issued notices to Apple, WhatsApp and Google on behalf of three JNU professors and asked them to reply in the matter of saving data on violence.

Meanwhile, student protests against fee hike and demanding the removal of the Vice-Chancellor continue in JNU.
