New Delhi [India], April 30 (ANI): Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Assistant Professor Dr. Buddha Singh, whose car was vandalised for organising a condolence meet for the CRPF personnel who were killed in the Sukma attack, on Sunday said the meeting was organised in order to remove anti-India tag, imposed post the Kanhaiya Kumar incident. "This incident took place day before yesterday. We organised a programme to condemn the attack and to pay tribute to the Armed Forces. It is the same place where the November 9 incident took place, where anti-India slogans were shouted," Singh told ANI. "We deliberately chose the place to show that we are with the Army and secondly, it was a mere condolence meet; it was not a political-ideological programme," he added. Singh said a complaint was written to the Chief Security Officer (CSO) and an FIR was registered with the police. Singh had alleged that his car was vandalised by unknown persons and stones were pelted at his house for condoling Sukma and Kupwara bravehearts. The condolence meet was held at JNU's Sabarmati Dhaba. (ANI)
