According to a police source, the 37 suspects identified do not belong to any active students’ party in JNU. “Those identified are students of JNU who were in favour of the semester registration process and wanted to enroll themselves. The group had 60 members and 37 of them are identified,” said a source. “The identified persons will be called for questioning and after that it will be cleared if they are associated with any of the student outfits,” said the source.

JNU unit ABVP secretary, Manish Jangid, who had earlier alleged that he was attacked by left students, was also part of ‘Unity Against Left’ WhatsApp group and some other ABVP members were also in this group,” another source said. However, Jangid claimed that on January 5, after he was attacked by some people, his phone broke and he had no knowledge about being added to that group.
