New Delhi:

One more person was arrested on Sunday in connection with the alleged molestation of students during a cultural festival at the all-women Gargi College last week, officials said. So far 15 people have been arrested in connection with the incident.

On February 6, a group of men broke into the Gargi College during the 'Reverie' fest and allegedly groped, harassed and molested the attendees, who claimed that security officials stood watching when the incident took place.

The incident came to light after some students took to Instagram to narrate their ordeal and alleged that security personnel did nothing to control the unruly groups.

Meanwhile, scores of students from leftist outfits took out a march in Delhi University's North Campus to express solidarity with anti-CAA protesters and the students of Gargi College who were allegedly molested during an event last week.

During the march, the students stopped at various points on the campus where they recited poems and raised slogans of 'azaadi' and 'Inquilab Zindabad'.

The march started from Arts Faculty and crossed many colleges and later culminated at the starting point. Outside the Arts Faculty, two students of Jamia Millia Islamia were selling badges and stickers.

Simeen Anjum, a Bachelor's student of Jamia said, "We have done wall art on the walls of the varsity. We are also going to other protest sites and painting banners for them. In order to raise money, we have put up this stall to sell stickers and badges."

Abhigyan, a student of DU said, "We are giving the message of love in this time of hatred. Hate? has right now claimed power in our country. To spread love in the time of resistance --? love for the idea of our country -- and to reclaim Ambedkar, Faiz, we organised this event."

The protesting students also went to Hindu College after they heard that the students were going ahead with their Valentine's Day ritual despite there being objections to it.  

The students of Hindu College worshipped Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh as part of their annual Valentine's Day customary 'Virgin Tree' worship.
