The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) on Tuesday filed a petition at the Delhi High Court challenging the Inter Hostel Administration's recent decision to amend the Inter Hostel Management (IHA) manual. They are also seeking to quash the 'illegally passed' hostel manual, as stated by the student body on Sunday. A JNUSU press release from two days earlier stated, "The call for a boycott of registration still stands. The JNUSU would like to inform the student community in consonance with the resolutions of the Council Meeting the union is filing a legal case in Delhi High court tomorrow to quash the illegally passed IHA manual." The students of JNU have been protesting for over two months against the new hostel manual, which hikes hostel and service charges and imposes several restrictions.
