JNU students, who have been punished by the university in connection with an alleged anti-national event in the campus, began an indefinite hunger strike yesterday to demand revocation of punitive action. 
JNU Students' Union President Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya along with other students started the hunger strike last night and said they reject the findings and recommendations of the high-level inquiry committee that probed the incident. 
The university officials, however,maintained that the decision has been taken after thorough investigation by a five-member probe panel and are in accordance with varsity norms.
Kanhaiya, Umar and Anirban Bhattachayra were arrested on the charge of sedition in February in connection with an event on campus during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.
While Kanhaiya has been slapped with a penalty of 10 thousand rupees on grounds of indiscipline and misconduct, Umar, Anirban and Kashmiri student Mujeeb Gatoo have been rusticated for varied durations.
