The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

New Delhi: Vi­o­lent clashes broke out be­tween Left-af­fil­i­ated AISA and RSS-backed ABVP at Ram­jas Col­lege on Wed­nes­day over a sem­i­nar in­vite to JNU stu­dents Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid which left many stu­dents, teach­ers and po­lice­men in­jured. A group of stu­dents were also al­legedly locked by ABVP ac­tivists on the premises for over four hours. Po­lice of­fi­cials claimed that a few po­lice­men, in­clud­ing the SHO of Mau­rice Na­gar po­lice sta­tion, were roughed up dur­ing the protest. A few jour­nal­ists too al­leged that they were at­tacked by po­lice dur­ing the clash. The clash broke out when a group of stu­dents and teach­ers tried to take out a march de­mand­ing ac­tion against ABVP for al­leged van­dal­ism and dis­rup­tion of a sem­i­nar on Tues­day. ABVP had on Tues­day locked down the sem­i­nar room and pelted stones in protest against the in­vi­ta­tion to the JNU stu­dents who were to ad­dress the sem­i­nar. The col­lege au­thor­i­ties de­cided to with­draw the in­vi­ta­tion which irked a sec­tion of stu­dents and teach­ers. — PTI
