Coronavirus scare: JNU suspends classes till March 31

New Delhi: A student of Jawaharlal Nehru University has accused the security guards of the varsity of physically assaulting him after he tried to go out of university campus amid the nationwide lockdown.

In a viral video, the student identified as Pranav can be seen sitting near the JNU gate, arguing with security guards, saying he needs to go outside the campus for an important work.

In support of his argument, Pranav claims that he had a written permission from the hostel warden.

“I have written permission to move out of campus, I will not move from here at any cost, you want to move me than come touch me. I will cough on you, I will spread corona,” the student is seen saying in video.

While the guards argued that the letter lacked stamp of the hostel warden and hence could not be verified for authenticity.

“How can I accept this letter, what is the credibility of letter without a stamp,” the guard said as he tried to convenience the student to go back to campus.

The student has now claimed that he was “beaten black and blue by the guards” and referred to AIIMS trauma centre.
