New Delhi: JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar’s father easily refused to accept security at his home here and said that his son is being punished by BJP and RSS for defeating their candidate in the student’s union elections.
“We politely urged the policemen to go back as we do not require security. The entire village is with us,” Kumar’s father Jaishankar Singh told PTI.
“Instead of us, please provide security to my son who was mercilessly beaten up by lawyers during production in the Patiala House court,” he added.
Police deployed security at Kanhaiya’s home a day after he was beaten mercilessly by lawyers in the complex court itself.
Kanhaiya’s mother Meena Devi is an Aganwadi worker who earns Rs 4,000 a month.
Jaishankar alleged that his son was “punished” by BJP and RSS for defeating their candidate in the JNU student’s union polls.
“They are out to destroy the career of my son for following a different ideology,” he alleged.
