Clashes had broken out between two groups of students at the JNU campus on Sunday evening.

The ABVP has denied any role in the violence, saying that 25 of its members were injured in the attack, and blamed the assault on student groups affiliated with leftist organizations.

JNU, one of India's most prestigious universities, has a history of left-wing activism.

Meanwhile, JNU Administration has said that it feels pain and anguish for the students who have sustained injuries in this violence. Jaishankar said such incidents are against the tradition and culture of JNU. "I've been bleeding. I'm not even in a condition to talk".

He claims over 50 students say they were attacked by police.

But 24 hours later, he still hadn't left campus, fearing members of the mob were still in the area.

JNUSU President Ghosh who was found in blood-soaked face with bandage has been alleged to have played a key role in the violence in JNU, which took place on Sunday. "Everyone is terrorized, everyone is in a state of panic". The police have been severely criticised for entering Jamia Millia Islamia in December without permission. "We were able to hear [them say].'Go to this room, go to that room - this room is ours, that room theirs'". Disagreement over the matter had already led to growing tensions between student groups opposing the increase and the ABVP, which backed the government decision.

It's the latest incident to ignite criticism of India's ruling Hindu nationalists. It said that this is a desperate attempt by forces of anarchy, who are determined to use students as cannon fodder, create unrest to shore up their shrinking political footprint.

On Tuesday, it was known that the Delhi Police had filed an FIR against the JNU Student Union president, and eight others for allegedly vandalising the server room of the university on January 4, a day before the violence that was unleashed inside the campus.

"In future, too, we will take the same action in other universities if someone tries to indulge in anti-national activities", Tomar said in the video. Calls to the police were not returned.

Sitaram Yechury, general secretary of the Communist Party of India, said the attack was a "collusion" between the JNU administration and "goons" of the Modi-linked party.

"We were surrounded by 100 police personnel at Azad Maidan".
