Afzal Guru row JNU forms committee to look into students demand

New Delhi: JNU on Monday formed a four-member committee to look into demands of students who are on hunger strike against punishment in connection with the controversial February 9 event even as three more students withdrew their fast due to deteriorating health condition.
“The Vice-Chancellor has decided to form a team consisting of Rector-1, Rector-II, Dean of Students and Registrar to discuss issues related to students and teachers who have been on hunger strike,” the university said in a statement.
“Solutions can be found only through peaceful dialogue and discussion and not through measures that can also have long term impact on health and adversely affect the academic life on campus. The administration yet again appeals the students to end their strike and come forward to hold discussion of their demands,” it added.
The students union, however, said it is yet to take a decision whether to enter into negotiations with the administration or not.
