An injured student due to clash in JNU.

A number of students were injured after fresh clashes between members of the All India Students’ Association (AISA) and Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) inside the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus on Sunday night.

A media report quoted police as saying that clashes broke out at around 9:45 PM on Sunday.

The deputy commissioner of police (DCP), southwest, Gaurav Sharma said: “We received the information regarding slogans being raised and apprehension of quarrel was received in Vasant Kunj Police station, however, no quarrel was found when the police reached the spot.”

The police officer informed that during enquiry, it came to light that heated arguments took place between two groups of students over organizing a seminar in a student union hall.

Informing about the incident, Aishe Ghosh, JNU Students’ Union (JNUSU) president, who is a member of the SFI unit of the university, in a tweet alleged that it was the ABVP “goons” who had initiated the attack on left students.

Aishe Ghosh tweeted: “ABVP’s goons unleashed violence in JNU today. Time and again these criminals have unleashed violence on students and have disrupted campus democracy. Will the JNU Administration still be silent? Will no actions be taken on the goons?”
