Both the student bodies alleged that sticks and stones were used to attack each other, and claimed more than five members each from the two sides were injured in the clash.

    Violence broke out here when NSUI members reached outside the ABVP's office to protest against the attack on students and teachers at JNU in Delhi on Sunday. The NSUI has been alleging that ABVP members were involved in the JNU attack.

    "Our protest was peaceful. However, goons from the ABVP suddenly attacked us using sticks, stones and pipes. It was a pre-planned attack in the presence of police. Over five of our members, including Savani, were injured in the attack," another NSUI general secretary Bhavik Solanki said.

    However, the ABVP alleged that NSUI members came to its office with an intention to attack the activists. "The NSUI members came to our office waiving their flags. They then removed the flags and used its wooden sticks to attack our members," ABVP member Naresh Desai said.

    "Just like the ABVP members were attacked in JNU, the anti-social elements of NSUI attacked us in a pre-planned manner here," he alleged, adding that more than five of their members were also injured in the incident.
