Brawl in JU after SFI loses engineering faculty too - By IE
Friday April 6, 03:51 AM
WTI students say the SFI brought in CPI(M) hooligans to bash them up,
members of teaching and non-teaching staff too lent a hand
The Nandigram issue has apparently decimated the Student's Federation
of India - the students' wing of the CPI(M) - in the Jadavpur
University this year.
Following its loss in the Arts Faculty and Science Faculty elections,
the SFI suffered its most humiliating debacle at the engineering
faculty elections that was held today. While at the Science Faculty,
We The Independent (WTI) bagged all the 4 seats, at the Engineering
Faculty, the Democratic Students Forum bagged all the 5 seats.
All three elections were held in the last 10 days. And today's results
finally triggered trouble, with the SFI members allegedly unleashing
terror on the campus.
Just when 200-odd representatives of We The Independent (WTI) - the
students' organisation which won the Science Faculty student's union
elections - set out to celebrate their 500-margin victory over the
SFI, pandemonium broke: they were allegedly roughed up by their SFI
counterparts. The WTI said the SFI had gathered CPI(M) hooligans and
hoodlums from outside to beat them up.
Allegations and counter allegations flew thick and fast.
Students from the science faculty heaped accusations on SFI members.
"They are absolutely frustrated because we have won all four seats in
the 950-student faculty. We won by a margin of 500. Seven of our boys
had to be taken to EDF Hospital for treatment of the injuries," said a
The most embarrassing claim made by the students was that some
teachers also joined the SFI in bashing up the WTI boys. "Even
teachers beat up the students in the Science Club room. We were also
beaten up in the non-teaching staff office room. We are submitting a
deputation to the Vice-Chancellor demanding the suspension of these
teachers," said Shesadri Mitra, one of the WTI students who also filed
an FIR at the Jadavpur police station. The faculty tried to cool down
the tense atmosphere.
Prof Swadesh Ranjan Roychowdhury, HoD, Chemistry, said: "We have
instructed the students to write down their complaints and demands and
submit it to the vice-chairman. There is no use increasing tension by
"It is obvious that a certain political party is trying to get back
their stronghold after losing in every faculty and hence creating the
ruckus... this is a desperate attempt to get back to power," said
another professor on condition of anonymity.
Sougata Roy, the general secretary of the JU Non-teaching staff union,
which owes allegiance to CPI(M), however, said: "The WTI members were
shouting anti-SFI slogans and suddenly got inside the Science Club and
started beating up the SFI students. They also got inside our office
and vandalised it. Now they are misrepresenting facts to cover up
their follies." None of the SFI members were available for comment.
