NEW DELHI: The ongoing protest in JNU against online system of entrance exam turned violent on Monday evening as agitating students allegedly gheroed, pelted stones and stormed into the JNU vice-chancellor’s residence and harassed his wife while he was away.

“Few hundred students have broke into my residence at JNU and have confined my wife inside the house. She is alone at home and terrified. Very unfortunate,” JNU V-C Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar tweeted.

However, a student from a Left outfit rejected the allegation and said a group of students had gone to meet the vice-chancellor, but they were allegedly manhandled by the security personnel. Seven students have been on a hunger strike since last week in protest against the online system of entrance exam that will be implemented from this session. According to sources, students from Left outfits went to the V-C’s residence to demand an audience with him since he had allegedly not given them an appointment for discussing the thorny issue.

A student leader claimed that when they went to meet him last week, he offered them sweets rather than addressing their concerns. On Monday evening, the students allegedly barged inside Mr Kumar’s residence while he was away and surrounded his wife. Police were called in and wives of other university professors rushed to her help, a professor said.

Mr Kumar’s wife was rushed to a hospital as she was in a state of trauma.
