NEW DELHI: A student was seriously injured today, April 14, in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) after the roof of a hostel fell on his head, and was taken to hospital. The All India Students' Association (AISA) said in a statement that the incident is the result of decaying hostel infrastructure in JNU. The left-wing student organisation has asked students to reach the Sabarmati hostel in numbers to demand answers from the warden.

"JNU VC and admin never bothered to spend money on hostel," alleged AISA. The incident took place in the JNU's Sabarmati hostel. The ceiling fell on the head of a student who was pursuing a BA in German. Hw is a 2nd-year student. He got severely injured and was taken to the Safdarjung Hospital.

AISA condemned the incident and said that it is a case of criminal negligence by hostel wardens and the dean of students. "We have time and again brought the issue of dilapidated hostel infrastructure and falling ceilings to the concerned authorities, but the JNU admin has been trying to digress the issue in the name of lack of funds. Stop putting the lives of students in danger!" said AISA in a statement.
