Late on Sunday night, students protested outside the Delhi Police headquarters against the attack in the JNU campus. The Delhi Police are facing tough questions about reaching the JNU campus late and being mute spectators instead of stopping the attack.

While the Left has blamed the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) for this attack, the ABVP has castigated students’ organisations of the Left parties for the same.

Commenting on the attack in JNU, Rahul Gandhi said that the government is afraid of the voices of students. While Priyanka Gandhi, who went to meet the injured, levelled serious allegations against the police and said that several students have been left with broken bones in the attack.

Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati demanded a judicial inquiry into the matter. Congress leader Digvijay Singh blamed the ABVP for the incident and asked the Home Minister to either take strict action against the goons or resign from his post.

Protests against the attack in JNU have begun in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and several other areas of the country. On Monday morning, hundreds of students from various colleges held a protest at the Gateway of India in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, Home Minister Amit Shah has spoken to the Police Commissioner and asked for an inquiry report to be submitted to him. The Delhi Police will investigate the JNU attack under the leadership of Joint Commissioner of Police Shalini Singh. 

Minister of External Affairs S Jaishankar and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, both of whom are JNU alumni, have criticized the attack.
