The masked attackers — who stormed JNU on Sunday night, went on a rampage, injuring several students and teachers — must be “hunted down swiftly,” said industrialist Anand Mahindra.
Condemning the attack on JNU, the Chairman of the Mahindra Group took to Twitter and wrote:
“It doesn’t matter what your politics are. It doesn’t matter what your ideology is. It doesn’t matter what your faith is. If you are an Indian, you cannot tolerate armed, lawless goons. Those who invaded JNU tonight must be traced & hunted down swiftly and given no quarter...”
At least 28 people, including the JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh, were seriously injured in the attack. She received serious head injuries and is said to be critical.
Besides Anand Mahindra, industrialist, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw also condemned the attack on JNU. Expressing her anguish, she said on Twitter that the attack is “unpardonable.”
Sharing a clip in which Ghosh can be heard saying that she was “brutally attacked” by masked goons, Majumdar said, “Violence cannot be condoled.”
JNU students have alleged that “RSS-AVBP goons” entered the campus and assaulted students when a meeting was being held by JNU teachers on the issue of violence on campus.
Violence broke out at JNU on Sunday evening after hundreds of masked men allegedly belonging to the RSS’ student wing ABVP, armed with sticks and rods, attacked students and teachers and indulged in vandalism.
Attackers, according to the students, barged into three hostels. Several video footages shared on social media show a group of men wielding hockey sticks, rods, moving around in Sabarmati hostel and going on a rampage.
Delhi Police filed a first information report in the case on Monday, saying that some masked goons involved in the attack have been identified.
