New Delhi:

After Delhi Police released the pictures of nine suspects in the JNU violence case and claimed JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh was one of them, Union Ministers Prakash Javadekar and Smriti Irani alleged that the findings proved that the violence in the JNU campus was led by Left organisations. Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar said that the chorus created in the last five days was created to blame ABVP, BJP and others.

“Today's police press conference established that for last 5 days the chorus that was created deliberately to blame ABVP, BJP and others, that wasn't true. It's the left organisations that pre-planned violence, disabled CCTV and destroyed server,” he said.

Textiles and Women & Child Development Minister Smriti Irani also launched a scathing attack against the Left for instigating violence. “Left design in JNU unmasked. They led mobs of mayhem, destroyed public property paid for by taxpayers, disallowed new students from being enrolled, used the campus as a political battleground. #LeftBehindJNUViolence becomes public knowledge as @DelhiPolice releases evidence,” Smriti Irani tweeted.

Of the nine, seven belong to left-leaning student organisations while two are affiliated to right-wing students’ body, the police said.

Addressing a press conference, DCP (Crime Branch) Joy Tirkey, who is probing the case, said a majority of the students wanted to register for the winter semester from January 1 to 5, but the left-leaning students’ bodies were not allowing them to do so.

Ghosh, who was injured in the attack, however, refuted the charge saying the Delhi Police should make public whatever proof it has against her.
