Deputy Commissioner of Police (South-West) Gaurav Sharma said this morning that both sides are accusing each other of disrupting the meeting. Investigations are underway and action will be taken later.
At the same time, according to the left-wing student body, another organization booked a student council hall to participate in a commemoration of the birth of the first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru on November 14 and to put up placards on the issue. However, when the organizers arrived at the hall in the evening to prepare for the event, they found that 15 ABVP members had taken over the venue.
Organizers of the event and members of the All India Students’ Association (AISA), the JNUSU group, tried to lure ABVP staff and asked them to leave. However, a group of students on the Left reported that ABVP members began harassing them. Then our staff came out of the hall and started shouting obscenities against ABVP, he said.
JNUSU said members of ABVP members committed violence and attacked ordinary students. After this many students came there and ABVP members had to leave. Criticizing this, JNUSU called for a march on Monday. At the same time, ABVP also reported that the left-wing parties attacked the students in preparation for the “Teflas” student workshop.
