Screening of BBC Documentary On PM Modi At JNU: Stone Pelted On Students, Power, Internet Connection Snapped

New Delhi: A group of students protested at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Tuesday night, complaining of stone pelting on them. The stones were allegedly pelted in protest against the BBC's video show being screened without permission.

'In some video clippings viral on social media, some students were blaming Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) for stone pelting.

The JNU Students Union said on Monday that they will hold a screening of 'India: the Modi Question' on Tuesday evening although the government has banned this documentary in India. 

'Stones were pelted to stop screening'

A group of students on the university campus alleged that they were stoned to prevent them from watching this documentary on their mobiles. They also alleged that the university administration had snapped power and internet to stop screening. They also alleged that the ABVP was behind the stone pelting.

ABVP said on Twitter in Delhi that the leftist chaos in JNU is leading to a shameful situation. When the country is preparing for Republic Day, the Left is trying its best to spread propaganda.

Campus plunged into darkness

The JNU students had said they would watch the documentary in the lawn of the Student Activity Center at 9 pm. But at 7:30 pm, due to sudden technical flaw, there was power failure in the entire campus. 

The students alleged that the campus administration snapped electricity and internet connections only to stop the screening of this documentary. After this, the students shared the link to each other on the mobile at nine o'clock and started watching the documentary on their laptops and mobile phones.

ABVP denies

The students allege that while watching the series, ABVP activists also pelted stones by covering their faces. They caught two of these students. 

JNU Students' Union President Aishe Ghosh says that the ABVP has pelted stones but no steps have been taken by the administration so far. On the other hand, the students associated with ABVP have denied that they pelted stone.
