Two days after dozens of masked men stormed the Jawaharlal Nehru University, attacking students and professors with iron rods and sledgehammers, and injuring at least 42 people, Vice-Chancellor Jagadesh M Kumar called the attack an "unfortunate" incident and urged students to "make a new beginning".

"Our heart goes out to all the injured students. We hope that they will recover fast and then resume their normal life. The incident that took place on January 5 is very unfortunate. Our campus is known for debates and discussions to resolve to any issues. Violence is not a solution,” the VC said on Tuesday.

“We will find every opportunity to make sure that normalcy returns to the University and I am glad to inform you that the data servers have become functional now, the registration process is back all the way,” he added.

“I urge all students to come back to the campus. Let's make a new beginning. Let us put the past and forget whatever has happened and work together to make this university great university,” the VC said.

Despite videos of attackers going viral, no arrest has yet been made. Meanwhile, Hindu Raksha Dal has claimed responsibility for the JNU mob attack.

Protests against the JNU attack are underway across the country, including at Delhi’s India Gate and Mumbai’s Gateway of India.
