VHP files case over JNU beef festivalSeptember 13th, 2012 - 9:32 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Sep 13 (IANS) The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Thursday filed a police complaint demanding the arrest of those organising a Beef Festival here, saying the proposed event had hurt Hindu sentiments.
The VHP said it filed a case under the Indian Penal Code against students and staff members organising the festival at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNJ).
A VHP delegation also called on JNU Vice Chancellor Sudhir Kumar Sopory and sought “stern action” against the organisers.
The concerned students, it said, should be barred from fighting elections and also ousted from the university, a VHP statement said.
A VHP leader warned that if JNU did not prevent the festival, it would “face the music”.
