"We politely urged the policemen to go back as we do not require security. The entire village is with us", said Kumar's father Jaishankar Singh.                     

"Instead of us, please provide security to my son who was mercilessly beaten up by lawyers during production in the Patiala House court", Jaishankar, who is confined to his home due to paralytic stroke two years ago, said.              

A day after Kanhaiya was assaulted by lawyers in the court complex, the police yesterday deployed security at his home.              

The JNUSU president's mother Meena Devi is an Aganwadi worker, earning Rs 4,000 a month and running the household.                 

Jaishankar alleged that his son was punished by BJP and RSS for defeating their candidate in the JNU student's union polls.                 

"They are out to destroy the career of my son for following a different ideology", he alleged.
