New Delhi:

Condemning the violence that gripped JNU campus on Sunday, External Affairs Minister and JNU Alumni S Jaishankar said, “This is against the tradition and culture of the university.”

The external affairs took to Twitter saying, “Have seen pictures of what is happening in JNU. Condemn the violence unequivocally. This is completely against the tradition and culture of the university.”

Earlier, violence broke out at Delhi’s JNU, as the head of its students’ union was attacked on campus.

According to the sources, clashes erupted between members of JNU Students' Union and ABVP on university campus. To quote Aishe Ghosh, the president of the students' union, "I have been brutally attacked by goons wearing masks. I have been bleeding. I was brutally beaten up".

The JNUSU said, "ABVP members wearing masks were moving around on the campus with lathis, rods and hammers". The ABVP, on the other hand, claimed that its members were brutally attacked by students affiliated to Left student organisations SFI, AISA and DSF.

However, JNU Students' Union (JNUSU) on Sunday released a statement after violent clashes broke out between the Left and ABVP students.

In its release, the administration said that there is law and order situation in the JNU campus. 'Masked miscreants armed with sticks are roaming around, damaging property and attacking people. The JNU Adminstration has called the police to maintain order,' the release added.
