New Delhi: At least two JNU students have been issued "warning letters" for writing texts on walls and roads inside the campus demanding action against professor Atul Johri, who is facing sexual harassment charges, prompting angry reaction from the students union which termed it as "intimidation" tactics.

Chief proctor of the varsity Kaushal Kumar issued a "warning letter" to the students on April 9 which said, "It has been alleged that you were involved in writing 'Suspend Johri' on road in front of School of Physical Sciences on March 27 at 6 pm. You are hereby warned and advised to be careful in future. You must restrain yourself from such activities that violate norms of discipline." Strict disciplinary action will be taken against you otherwise, it added.

 "This is surprising and highly condemnable. Eight FIRs have been registered against the professor and the varsity has not taken any action. When we are protesting to demand his suspension, we are issued warning letters," Srabani Chakraborty, one of the students who was issued the letter, told PTI.

Professor Atul Johri was arrested on March 20 for allegedly sexually harassing several women students. He was however granted bail within hours. The students union has decried the varsity action, alleging that it was intimidation of the protesting students.
