The students also accused the Delhi Police of delaying action in the case.
"The Delhi Police has done only token follow up of the FIR that was filed by the complainants. The delay in recording statements is a clear sign of nexus between the police and administration," a student alleged.
Meanwhile, the All India Democratic Women's Association, wrote to the vice chancellor of the university demanding immediate suspension of the professor and, a free and fair inquiry.
According to the police, an FIR was registered against the professor at the Vasant Kunj police station.
Johri resigned from two administrative posts in JNU -- the director of the Human Resources Development Centre (HRDC) and the director of the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) -- on "moral grounds", but had claimed that the allegation against him was a "motivated move" by students with vested interests.
