Kancha Ilaiah condemns attack

Kancha Ilaiah Shepherd strongly said this is the first time in history of higher education after Independence that masked forces with lethal weapons entered the campus and beat up teachers and students.

Writer and academic Kancha Ilaiah Shepherd strongly condemned the attack on students and teachers of Jawaharlal Nehru University of Delhi on Sunday, and said this is the first time in history of higher education after Independence that masked forces with lethal weapons entered the campus and beat up teachers and students.

Alleging collusion by university administration, he said this signals a new level of disturbing trend of organised violence with support from authorities.
