New Delhi :

Delhi Police on Monday registered an FIR in connection with the violence at Jawaharlal Nehru University, a day after at least 28 - , including JNU Students’ Union president Aishe Ghosh - people were injured when masked men armed with sticks and rods attacked students and teachers and damaged property on the campus.

"We have taken cognizance of yesterday's JNU Violence and have registered an FIR. Social media and CCTV footages will be part of investigation," Devendra Arya, DCP (South-West), said.

According to reports, the investigation is underway and police have identified some masked men through videos on social media.

Earlier, Delhi Police PRO MS Randhawa held a late-night meeting with a delegation of students and teachers after violence broke out at the university in the national capital. Following the violence, the administration called in the police which conducted a flag march.

The delegation comprising students and teachers from JNU, Jamia and Delhi University submitted an application to the Delhi Police PRO with four demands, including urgent medical assistance to injured students and arrest of the accused behind the violence.

"The police have assured us that they will look into the matter and our demands," president Federation of Central University Teachers’ associations Rajib Ray said. The students demanded that the police leave the JNU campus.

The Left-controlled JNUSU and the ABVP blamed each other for the violence. The students' union alleged that its members, including Ghosh, were injured in stone pelting by ABVP members.

But the RSS-backed students' organisation alleged that its members were brutally attacked by Left-affiliated student outfits and 25 of them were injured, while 11 were missing. Among the injured was the secretary of its JNU unit.

The violence occurred while a public meeting by the JNU Teachers' Association was being held.
