Hunger strike drags on at JNU

Calcutta Telegraph reports:

JNU teachers and alumni today joined the students’ 10-day-old hunger strike but there was no response from the university administration.

The students are protesting the authorities’ “harsh” punishment of 19 students in connection with a February 9 campus demonstration against the 2013 hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

The JNU teachers’ association began an indefinite relay hunger strike from today while the alumni association joined the fast for a single day. State chapters of the alumni association held protests in eight cities, including Calcutta and Patna.
