JNU violence: DU student, identified as masked attacker, approaches NCW

Delhi University student Komal Sharma has registered a complaint with the National Commission for Women against a news channel for allegedly defaming her by identifying her as one of the attackers in the violence that broke out at Jawaharlal Nehru University on January 5.

In her complaint with the women’s body, Sharma said that she has been wrongly named in the incident and that the channel did not even approach her for a response or clarification in this regard.

On Tuesday, Delhi Police had also identified the masked woman seen in videos of the January 5 violence as Delhi University student Komal Sharma. A student of Daulat Ram College and a member of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, Sharma allegedly is seen wearing a check shirt, a light blue scarf and carrying a stick in the video. She is also allegedly seen threatening students along with two other men inside Sabarmati hostel.
