New Delhi: What could be a major embarrassment for Kanhaiya Kumar, it has been learnt that the Jawaharlal Nehru University Student's Union leader, who is out on conditional bail, was fined by the University administration in 2015 for misbehaving with a former girl student.
The incident dates back to June 10, 2015, when a girl student asked Kanhaiya Kumar not to urinate inside the campus and use toilet instead.
To her astonishment, the JNU student leader didn't stop and instead started shouting at her. While calling the girl student a 'psycho mental', Kumar said it was his hostel.
While threatening her by saying, “main tujhe dekh lunga”, Kanhaiya asked the girl to do whatever she wants to do against him.
The girl registered a complaint with the JNU administration and Kanhaiya Kumar was found guilty.
A strict action was recommended against the JNUSU president. But the vice chancellor refrained from taking a tough action as it could have had a bad impact on his future.
The administration, however, decided to impose a fine of Rs 3,000 on Kanahiya.
The latest incident comes to the fore two days after Kanhaiya, while addressing a student's gathering on women's day, said, "No matter how much you try to stop us, we will speak up against human rights violations. We will raise our voice against AFSPA. While we have a lot of respect for our soldiers, we will still talk about the fact that in Kashmir women are raped by security personnel."
Kanhaiya was released on conditional six-month interim bail by the Delhi High Court on March 02.
He was arrested on sedition charges for allegedly raising anti-national slogans at a cultural event organised on the campus on February 9 to commemorate the third anniversary of the execution of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.
