After its unprovoked violence in Aligarh Muslim University and Jamia Milia Islamia, the latest reports coming out from JNU suggests that ABVP has unleashed a brutal attack on the campus, leaving many students injured.
Close to 50 ABVP members who wore masks barged into the hostels in JNU had beaten up students and faculties, in response to the on-going protests.
Here are the updates:
Responding to the Quint, JNUSU General Secretary Satish Yadav said that the attack was pre-planned. “For the past 68 days, there has been a movement in JNU against fee hike. The administration has tried to break this movement but has been unsuccessful. This time they have colluded with ABVP to spread violence,” he said.
Screenshots are also doing rounds in social media which suggests that the attack was pre-planned.

Police remained mute spectators as the ambulance which had come to aid the injured students was stopped and vandalized by the right-wing group. The doctors who had come in the ambulance to assist the injured students were denied entry to the campus.
“About 100 goondas in mask yielding lathis and stone attacked our ambulance when we tried to enter the campus,” said Dr. Praveen, a general surgeon at Maharishi Valmiki Hospital to the Hindu.
“The police remain a mute spectator while our ambulance was being surrounded and attacked by the mob,” another doctor in the group said.
Responding to the violence unleashed by right-wing fanatics in JNU, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal tweeted that the police should immediately intervene to restore peace.
“I am so shocked to know abt the violence at JNU. Students attacked brutally. Police should immediately stop violence and restore peace. How will the country progress if our students will not be safe inside university campus?” he asked.
Students of the Film & Television Institute of India (FTII) here on late Sunday night staged a protest condemning the attack on students of Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.
They held a demonstration outside the gate of the premier film institute, holding banners with the message “FTII stands with JNU, condemns the violence of ABVP Goons”.
