ABVP, JNUSU students clash at the JNU campus on Ramanavami. 16 students from both Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and Jawaharlal Nehru University students’ Union (JNUSU) were injured during a clash on the campus.

According to NDTV, the Delhi police registered an FIR in connection with a clash between students of the two groups. The clash in the JNU campus took place allegedly over non-vegetarian food being served in the hostel mess. This was opposed by the ABVP students as Ram Navami was being celebrated across the country.

The police confirmed that an FIR has been registered based on a complaint filed by members of all the students unions. The FIR was filed by JNUSU,SFI,DSF and AISA against unknown ABVP students.

The officials said that an FIR has been registered under different sections according to the Indian Penal Code. Furthermore, “the probe is on to collect evidence and identify culprits.”

However, according to the Deputy Commissioner of Police (South-west) Manoj C said that ABVP members plan to file a complaint today.

JNUSU alleged that the ABVP members did not allow students to have non-vegetarian food in the hostel mess. Moreover, they threatened everyone and created a violent atmosphere.

However, the ABVP members denied all these charges. Furthermore, they claimed that the “Leftists” obstructed a puja programmer organized at the hostel on Ram Navami.

It is learnt that students from both sides have accused each other of pelting stones and injuring their members. In addition to this, the JNUSU and ABVP took out separate marches inside the university campus to protest against the clash.

However, the police rushed to the campus and ensured that there is no further escalation of the violence. The students injured in the clashes were shifted to nearby hospitals for treatment.
