A scuffle broke out in no time. The student alleged that the guards took him to their station and tharshed him. He was later taken to the AIIMS Trauma Centre for treatment.
Sources said that he had cough and minor fever and was given treatment by doctors inside JNU.
When he was stopped by the guards, he allegedly threatened guards that he will spread coronavirus.
A video of the incident is going viral on the social media. Meanwhile, JNU Registrar said, a handful of Jawaharlal Nehru University students have been repeatedly seen violating the guidelines issued by the Government and administration. These students have been directly and indirectly encouraged/supported by a few faculty members.
Those who have been indulging in activities endangering health and safety of JNU campus residents are cautioned not to repeat such acts. Strict action will be taken against violators, registrar added.
