JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar’s father on Thursday refused to accept security at his home here and alleged that his son was “punished” by BJP and RSS for defeating their candidate in the students’ union elections.
“We politely urged the policemen to go back as we do not require security. The entire village is with us,” Kumar’s father Jaishankar Singh told PTI.

A day after Kanhaiya was assaulted by lawyers in the court complex, the police 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.
Kanhaiya’s native home is in Masnadpur Tola in Bihat village under Barauni police station, about 30 km from the town headquarters of Begusarai.
Jaishankar said the whole family and neighbours are worried about Kanhaiya and sought justice for him.
Kanhaiya’s elder brother Manikant Kumar, who works in a private firm in Assam, has rushed back home, so has his younger brother Prince Kumar, who is preparing for Civil Services examination in Delhi.
After clearing MA from Nalanda Open University in Bihar, Kanhaiya had joined JNU in 2011 to pursue an MPhil in International Studies. He is now in the final year of his PhD.
