Tripathi had sought a report on the anti-India sloganeering inside JU campus. Slogans in favour of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru were raised on Wednesday at a rally brought out by JU students to express solidarity with their JNU counterparts agitating against the arrest of their leader Kanhaiya Kumar for alleged sedition.
    
Slogans like 'Afzal bole azadi, Geelani bole azadi' and 'Cheenke ke lenge azadi' were raised. Other slogans like "Freedom from RSS, freedom from Modi government", "Jab Kashmir ne maangi azadi, Manipur bhi boli azadi" were also raised.
    
On the meeting with the governor, who is also the university chancellor, Das said Tripathi has asked for a report and the University administration would have an executive council meeting on Monday.
