A congressional committee of inquiry, which dealt with the violence in the JNU on January 5, selected Vice-Chancellor Jagadeesh M Kumar as the "thought leader" behind the attack and called for his immediate release. The party also called for a "criminal investigation" against Mr. Kumar and others for "conspiring with the attackers to trigger the violence" and for the Delhi police to be held accountable for their conduct during the attack.
In a detailed document released this afternoon, which also accused the Delhi police of allowing attackers to move freely around campus, the party stated that the Vice Chancellor 's actions "were toleration and complicity with the Point out to attackers "and" meticulously infiltrated the university "would have people … who followed him and … had a tendency to the right ideology".
The report from the congress shows that gaps in campus security – which allowed weapon-carrying idiots to enter and use violence – "prudently, planned … targeted violence to intimidate the fear of students and teachers".
The report identified discrepancies between the university's official statement on violence and the police statement. According to the report, JNU officials called the police around 4:30 p.m., but the police said it should not start until around 7:45 p.m.
In its first official statement, the Delhi Police said that the violence had taken place in a location that was far from where its personnel were stationed.
The congressional claim reiterated the allegation of a student – Saket Moon, a student union official – of the NDTV: "The police have been on campus since the afternoon but did nothing."
The Delhi police, who have also been criticized for their behavior during the attack, have filed several FIRs so far, only one of which is linked to the violence on the evening of January 5. No arrests have been made in this case so far.
The other FIRs, filed in quick succession at the time of the attack, named student union chairman Aishe Ghosh and several others in connection with the alleged vandalism and violence in the university's computer server room – an attack that the JNU administration precipitated denounced by protests against hostel fee increases.
Ms. Ghosh, who suffered a head injury in the attack, has emphatically denied any involvement by JNUSU officials in the incident in the server room. As of Monday, nine students, including Ms. Ghosh, will be interviewed about the violence in the server room.
However, the congressional report raised suspicions of the server room episode itself. It said "smells like Mala Fides" and referred to a statement from the vice chancellor that the server room was in on January 4, the day it was said to be devastated Operation.
The university said the mob attack that occurred hours after the alleged clashes in the server room was due to the fact that some students had prevented others from registering for the winter semester.
"It is almost as if the Vice Chancellor took advantage of the separation of the server to prevent CCTV footage from being recorded, to protect the attackers and to conduct their business without recording," the report said.
Congress also questioned turning off the street lights during the attack. Those who were attacked said they intentionally provided cover for their attackers to use the violence and be safe.
Since the attack, in which 70 to 100 masked thugs with iron bars and sledgehammers stormed the campus and started a three-hour killing spree that injured 34 people, the Vice Chancellor has been criticized for his apparent inactivity.
Mr. Kumar's resignation has been requested by student and faculty departments, and Murli Manohar Joshi, long-time chairman of the BJP, but the government has so far refused to comply.
