Maintaining that the act by students amounted to 'indiscipline' and any talk about disintegration of nation cannot be national, the university authorities said that the committee headed by the Chief Proctor of JNU will investigate the matter and come up with its report.

"The permission for the programme was sought by giving incomplete information, so it is an act of indiscipline. A committee headed by the Chief Proctor will examine the footage of the event and speak to the witnesses. It is on basis of the report, the varsity will take appropriate action", JNU Vice Chancellor Jagdeesh Kumar said.

Briefing about the incomplete information, the varsity Registrar Zutshi said, " there was no where mentioned in the permission request that the event will be on Afzal Guru, they just said that they wanted to organise a cultural event. How can any talk about disintegration of nation be national?".

The student organisers of the event had pasted posters across the campus inviting them to gather for a protest march against judicial killing of Afzal Guru and Maqbool Bhatt and in solidarity with struggle of Kashmiri migrants, at varsity's Sabarmati dhaba.
