News18 reports  hat The JNU administration has asked student activist Shehla Rashid to appear for a proctoral inquiry over her claims on Twitter about "Internet censorship" on the campus. Rashid, a former JNU students' union vice president, had tweeted on November 11 that students were unable to access content from AIB, The Wire, NDTV, and YouTube videos related to student movements, and that certain keyword searches related to Mamata Bannerjee, Rahul Gandhi, and others were censored.  Rashid has said she will not appear for the enquiry since the JNU administration has no jurisdiction over her tweets.
