“FIR on Aishe for head injury; FIR on Pehlu for being lynched; FIR on Jamia, UP victims for police attack. They think we are idiots?”

These were the words of Anand Patwardhan, the documentary filmmaker well known for his award-winning documentary titled “Ram ke Naam” on the Babri masjid demolition.

The JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University) administration filed a complaint with Delhi basis which an FIR was filed on January 5 against Aishe Ghosh and 19 others for attacking security guards and vandalising a server room in the university campus on January 4. On January 5 itself masked goons, suspected to belong to right-wing ABVP had entered JNU premises and unleashed terror on the unarmed students and teachers.

The FIR states that student agitators including Aishe Ghosh and Saket Moon allegedly entered the Communication and Information Services office by “breaking” a glass door and damaged the fibre optic cables, servers and biometric devices. The Vasant Kuni North police station registered a case under IPC (Indian Penal Code) Section 323 (Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 341 (Punishment for wrongful restraint), 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation) and damage to public property.

This has been done as Ghosh, with a bandage on her head addressed students after her release from the hospital saying that every blow of the iron rod used on her and other injured students and teachers will be answered to by debate and discussion and the university's culture will never be eroded. JNUSU also demanded resignation of the VC (Vice-Chancellor) of JNU for failing to check up on injured students and professors.

The FIR being seen a fear tactic by most, has invited a lot of criticism on social media from some well-known Twitter users as well:
