Taking strong exception to attack on their son Kanhaiya Kumar by some lawyers inside the Patiala House court complex, the parents of JNU students’ union president refused to take police protection provided to them.
“We refused the police protection because if in the presence of 400 policemen my son can get attacked in the court premises then why do we need protection? The government has failed to provide security to my son and as a result he was attacked,” Kanhaiya’s mother told the media here.
“What difference would my life make to the government? Why they are sending police to protect us? They should protect my son,” she added.
She further said her son is not an anti-national and that every member of their society stands behind them.
“My son is a victim of a conspiracy. There has been no action against those who attacked him in the court premises. My son is innocent, he is being framed,” she added.
The parents of Kanhaiya Kumar were on Thursday provided police protection in their village in Bihar.
Security forces have been deployed at Kumar’s native village Bihat in Begusarai district after he was assaulted in a Delhi court on Wednesday.
While Kanhaiya was being brought to the court, a large group of men dressed in lawyers’ robes barged into the Patiala House court complex and allegedly beat up a journalist and a student.
