JNU Teachers' Association: Unbearable to see our students being rendered so vulnerable

Jawaharlal Nehru University Teachers' Association (JNUTA)  statement on attack on Umar Khalid, "a JNU student": JNU student Umar Khalid has been shot at just outside Constitution Club on the afternoon of August 13, 2018. He luckily escaped unhurt.
As teachers of JNU it is unbearable to see our students being rendered so vulnerable. Jawaharlal Nehru University Teachers’ Association would like to express deep anguish at the way JNU as a community have been vilified through an organized political campaign. Violence against JNU students especially from marginalised backgrounds is being normalised and routinized every day in this manner on social media and electroic media. The university lawyers stand in courts of law and vilify its own students.
For over a year, Delhi Police has been unable to find a single clue to lead to Najeeb Ahmad who was made to disappear from the campus.
We condemn the attack on our student in unequivocal terms. The Delhi Poilce must expedite the investigation and arrest Umar Khalid’s attacker immediately. We demand that this state of lawlessness and a witch-hunt against JNU and its students be halted immediately.
