The letter dated February 11, a day ahead of the arrest of JNU students union President Kanhaiya Kumar, reads, "The Vice Chancellor has granted permission to the police force to enter JNU campus if need be and as you may deem fit".

VC Jagdesh Kumar had claimed that he did not give a free hand to police to come on campus and pick up students.

"I never invited the police to enter the campus and pick our students. We only provided whatever cooperation was needed as per the law of land. We were bound to do so", he had told reporters.

The letter, by University Registrar Bhupinder Zutshi to DCP South, was sent in response to the two communications sent by police to the university asking them to rectify the faulty CCTV cameras and 'produce six students for joining the investigation of the case'.

Meanwhile, the students continued to boycott classes in protest against the alleged mishandling of the issue by university administration questioning the administration's decision to allow the police 'crackdown' on campus. They were joined by some teachers today who also demanded an explanation from the VC for the same.
