The Women’s Development Cell (WDC) of Miranda House, Delhi University, has issued a statement on social media where it has accused a postgraduate student from JNU, Aman Sinha, of “targeting and preying on women across different colleges in DU”.

The statement read, “An extremely creepy and perverted person, Aman Sinha has been targeting and preying on women across different colleges in DU. He claims to draw legitimacy from various Women collectives in the campus, by which he establishes contact with women to lure them into his trap. We have proofs of these allegations as many women have come out and spoken about his predatory behaviour.”

In the screenshots attached in the post, the Cell claims that Sinha was removed from AISA earlier due to ‘inappropriate behaviour’.

The statement says, “There have been multiple complaints against Aman Sinha from within Miranda in the past where women were so concerned about his predatory nature that a thread of messages was circulated warning women to stay away from him by the victims.” It adds, “Aman Sinha is a sexist man trapped in the body of a woke boy who gains social currency by repeatedly associating with prominent student leaders and going to every protest where he can find gullible women to impress. He especially preys on first years.”

The statement also mentions an occasion of a Pinjra Tod protest where he made many women “uncomfortable” with his presence there. In a conversation with a girl from Miranda, he is said to have called the women at the college “bitches” and a “kitty party”. He is also claimed to have said that he wasn’t wrong in using illegal substance at the protest. It says, “He responded by saying he smoked drugs with the organizers and what not, indicating the social capital he enjoys in order to intimidate his victims and completely ignoring why he was asked to leave.”

The post states further, “Aman Sinha is a mansplainer, is sexist and harasses women all under a garb of being an intellectual, student leader and the ultimate feminist.” The WDC also appealed to the “intellectual circles” to disassociate themselves from him due to his alleged inappropriate conduct. “it would be a matter of shame and complicity if they do not disassociate with him, and for once take a stand for all they preach.”

Speaking to TOI, Anoushka Parija, President of the WDC, said that the statement had been put out so that more students come forward with their complaints. She also said that the complaints will be sent to the Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) and they intend to seek legal recourse over the matter.

The accused student, for his part, has claimed that it is a case of vendetta against him by some people from the organization and that “many women have come out in my support”.
