A student of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) was booked for allegedly molesting a student, the Delhi Police said on Sunday, 29 May. The case was filed following a complaint of molestation from a JNU third year student.
A case has been registered under sections 354A (assault or criminal force to woman) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at PS Vasant Kunj North.According to RSS student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), not only did the accused attempt to physically sexually harass the victim, but he also threatened the victim if she spoke out in public. The top ‘comrades’ have been feverishly trying to cover up this heinous crime. The statement added n that the accused, Prasanna Raj, was spotted walking freely around the JNU campus, fearless of the law, while other AISA members were engaging in blaming the victim.
The ABVP pointed out that several activists linked with the Leftist group had previously been involved in sexual assault. According to the ABVP, so many incidents of sexual assault against AISA members have come to light that it would be no exaggeration to alter the name of AISA to ‘All India Sexual Assaulters.’
