Around 37 hours after the attack in the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus on Sunday evening, Delhi Police have failed to arrest any assailant. However, it registered an FIR in the matter on Monday.

Despite videos of attackers going viral on social media, they remain absconding. Meanwhile, Hindu Raksha Dal leader Pinki Chaudhary has claimed responsibility for the JNU attack and said that he will take the same action in the future as well.

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

Clashes took place on Monday between students of Kolkata’s Jadavpur University, workers of Left parties protesting against the JNU attack and Bharatiya Janata Party supporters. Police resorted to baton charge to disperse the protesters and bring the situation under control.

On Tuesday morning, Mumbai Police shifted protesters from the Gateway of India -- where they had been protesting against the JNU attack for the past two days -- to Azad Maidan.

Meanwhile, the date for semester registration in JNU has been postponed amid ongoing tensions. Several students are leaving the campus and heading home due to security concerns.

After the attack, calls for the resignation of Vice-Chancellor (V-C) M Jagadesh Kumar have become louder. JNU Students’ Union president Aishe Ghosh said that the attack was well-planned and that V-C Kumar should resign.

Amid all this, the JNU attack case has now reached the Supreme Court, where a contempt petition has been filed against the Central government and the Delhi Police.
