In what can potentially trigger a fresh controversy, a group of teachers from the Jawaharlal Nehru University have alleged that the varsity is a ‘den of organized sex racket’.
According to reports, a 200-page document compiled last year and submitted to the university administration by a group of 11 teachers led by Amita Singh, a professor at the Centre for Law and Governance, contended that sex-workers have been openly employed in the hostel messes, where they not only lure young girls but also corrupt boys.
The report notes that freshers are inducted in this circle by luring through money, sex, drugs and alcohol and some security staff members are also involved in this racket.
The document assumes particular significance at a time when JNU Student’s Union president Kanhaiya Kumar has been fined Rs. 10,000 and others including Umar Khalid and Ariban Bhattacharya have been suspended from the varsity in connection with a controversial event on parliamentary attack convict Afzal Guru in the campus, where anti-national slogans were raised.
