A mob went on a rampage inside Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in New Delhi on Sunday evening. These people had covered their faces with masks and were armed with sticks. Students and teachers of the University were attacked by the goons carrying sticks. The attack resulted in a number of injuries to students and faculty of the University. Those injured were admitted to AIIMS hospital in New Delhi. As per the late-night update from the hospital, 18 people were brought into the hospital in an injured condition. However, agency reports suggested that 28 persons were injured in the violence. Among those injured was JNU Students Union president Aishe Ghosh.
The police converged on the campus after the violence broke out.
The All India Students Association (AISA) blamed the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) for the attack. In a statement, AISA said that ABVP had been attacking the JNU students who were protesting the massive fee hike.
The ABVP has, however, denied the allegations. The student body has accused the Left-affiliated organisations of instigating the violence.
