The student added that an argument broke out between the students, where the majority said it would boycott the examinations. "The guy from ABVP made it clear, he will sit for it," he added.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Human Right Development (MHRD) report has still not released, with questions being raised whether the authorities want "normalcy" inside the campus.

On asking why the MHRD delaying the report, JNU Teachers Association (JNUTA) President DK Lobiyal spoke to Millennium Post and said, "The report is mainly because MHRD has no reply to what committee action should be taken, but it seems if the ministry doesn't disclose the report, there is something that they might have said they do not want to implement."
