In the statement, the dean alleged that the agitating students shouted slogans, pushed him and abused him.
As reported in the Times of India, the Dean, Umesh Kadam, had invited all hostel presidents and four JNUSU members for a meeting to discuss the hike in fee and fines. During the discussion, the students invited more students and didn’t let the Dean leave his office. In the video, it can be seen a tussle between students and security personnel outside the Dean’s office.
Twitter users condemned the unruly behaviour of students towards the Dean, which is a regular at JNU these days.

These “students” are the future of my country? ? #JNU needs to get rid of politicking parasites, enforce discipline & be a center of learning once again. Hope authorities don’t blink. It’s now or never https://t.co/ZtHL6rHo46
