    The JNUSU and Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) sparred over each other after masked men entered the university campus and attacked students brutally.

    The JNU students union claimed that the ABVP members, with their faces masked, were moving in the campus with lathis, rods and hammers and beating up students. The Union has dubbed it as an emergency situation.

    "Students are trying to save themselves while being chased by ABVP goons while the police is complicit in the crimes, forcing students to chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' slogans," the JNUSU said on Twitter.

    However, the ABVP claimed that Left activists were behind the violence in JNU.

    It blamed Leftist student organisations SFI, AISA and DSF for the attack where 25 students were injured in the attack.
