New Delhi: A student of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in the country's capital Delhi has been accused of sexual abuse. The accused Keshav Kumar has been the student leader of the All India Students Union. AISA is a Left Student Organisation. It is a student unit of CPI (ML). JNU student union has distanced itself from Keshav Kumar and demanded strict action in the matter. Students close to Keshav Kumar have also distanced themselves from Keshav Kumar by issuing a statement.
Valentina Brahma, a member of the Central Working Committee of the All India Students' Council (ABVP) and vice-president of the JNU Students' Union in 2015, commented on the case and said, "Once again, the misdeeds of the AISA have come to light. The student was not only raped but also video. The victim is also unable to complain due to character abuse and side effects. The students of the third student of the Bachelor of Arts of students of the Centre for Russian Studies issued a statement saying that they have come to their notice that Keshav Kumar, a student of the class, has been accused of sexual abuse. The students said that there have been serious allegations of a sexual offence against the girls against him. This includes violence with her intimate partner, attempted rape, taking pictures of a woman in an objectionable state without permission and then blackmailing her with these pictures and videos.
At least 4 students have come forward in front of whom Keshav Kumar showed his blackmailing content. It is also learnt that Keshav Kumar is not only the 'SFC representative' of the batch but is also being sent to Russia by the university on scholarship through the Russian Embassy. It has been decided to send him to Russia from RUDM University in Moscow to pursue a Masters course. The Centre for Russian Studies has called for the decision to be withdrawn immediately. The students of his batch have said, 'We are shocked and outraged by such acts. We condemn Keshav Kumar actions. We stand with the victims and we demand that such a person cannot be our representative.' At the same time, as we investigate the matter, we demand to ensure the safety of the victims. On the other hand, AISA has also said that it is against 'patriarchy' and 'sexual harassment'.
