The Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) administration will be carrying out a campus survey to identify spots where CCTV cameras can be installed to keep a check on “frequent” incidents of “anti-national” slogans being scribbled on walls, an official has said.

The survey will be conducted on the basis of a report received from the chief security officer on the recent incident of slogans such as “Free Kashmir” and “Bhagwa Jalega” scribbled on the walls of the School of Languages. The incident came to light on Sunday following a complaint by RSS-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad.

“We have received the report by the chief security officer on Sunday’s incident. Based on it, we will survey possible spots on the campus to install CCTV cameras. Other possible measures will also be implemented after considering their feasibility given that we have a huge campus,” JNU rector Prof Satish Chandra Garkoti told PTI.

Alleging that students often cook up stories and are themselves involved in such incidents, he said, they have to be extra careful before taking any action.

NCP leader disqualified from LS

NCP leader Mohammed Faizal P.P. was disqualified as a member of the Lok Sabha on Wednesday after Kerala High Court rejected his plea for suspension of his conviction in an attempt to murder case.

This is the second time Faizal has been disqualified as a member of the Lok Sabha. He was first disqualified on January 25 after a sessions court in Kavaratti convicted him on charges of attempting to murder P. Salih. However, the disqualification was revoked on March 29 after Kerala High Court suspended his conviction.

In August, the Supreme Court set aside the high court order on an appeal filed by the Union Territory of Lakshadweep and referred the matter back to the high court.
