New Delhi: A 22-year-old Spanish language student of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) was attacked and molested in the university campus by her friend, who was reportedly obsessed with her, police said Monday. The accused has been arrested.
Abhinendra Jain, a former classmate of the victim, attacked her when she was sitting with others outside her hostel Sunday afternoon. The girl was staying in Shipra Hostel on the JNU campus.
Police said Jain, in his 20s, tried to strangulate the girl and threatened her. He also molested the girl even as other students watched the attack in horror.
After Mamata Banerjee wrote to President Pranab Mukherjee urging action against former Supreme Court Judge AK Ganguly in the sexual harassment case, Bar Council of India Chairman Manan Kumar Mishra said that police can lodge an FIR in the case but the victim has to come in front and speak up.
