Saurabh Kumar Sharma is a Ph.D. student at Jawaharlal Nehru University. A member of the Hindu-nationalist Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), he was elected joint secretary of the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) in 2015,[1] defeating the left-backed All India Students Association candidate by a small margin of 28 votes.[2] Sharma's election victory was the first time a candidate of the ABVP had been elected to the central panel of the JNUSU in 14 years.[2]

Sharma is from Mirzapur, in Uttar Pradesh, and has two siblings.[3] He enrolled in JNU in 2012, for a master's degree in engineering, after which he began a Ph.D in neuroscience. He had no political affiliation before he joined the ABVP in 2012.[3] In February 2016, he was responsible for calling media representatives to cover a rally held at JNU, which then became the centre of a controversy.[3] During the student protests that followed in March 2016, Nivedita Menon made a speech in which she discussed nation formation, nationalist aspirations, and Kashmir's accession to the Indian Union.[4] Sharma filed a police complaint accusing her of having made anti-national statements.[5]
