Bhopal: NSUI on Tuesday demanded that its rival, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, should be banned for attacking college teachers in the state.

"We want that the ABVP be banned as its cadres were indulging in goonda-ism and had bashed up Khandwa Agriculture College Professor Ashok Chaudhary on March 9," said National Students Union of India's national general secretary, Sheikh Shahnawaz, here.

He also tried to link professor S S Thakur's death due to cardiac arrest in Damoh district on March 11, to the attack on Chaudhary. Thakur was Chaudhary's colleague, and had tried to intervene when latter was attacked.

Thakur's relatives had blamed ABVP for the death.

In 2006, H S Sabharwal, a professor at Madhav College in Ujjain, too was assaulted by ABVP activists. He later died, NSUI general secretary reminded.

He said the BJP government in the state was shielding ABVP. Shahnawaz added that Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan should break his silence over the attack on Chaudhary, and Thakur's death.

NSUI will lay siege to the state assembly and organise a state-wide protest against ABVP, he warned.

"We are going to submit memorandum to Governor and President against ABVP's violence," he said. PTI LAL KRK
