Hindu Raksha Dal, a far-right group on Monday took responsibility for the brutal assault on teachers and students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) inside the campus.

In its statement issued on Monday, Hindu Raksha Dal said its members had barged into the campus of JNU on January 5 and perpetrated the attack on JNU students and its faculty.

Pinki Chaudhary, leader of Hindu Raksha Dal, in video said the attack was carried out against JNU students and teachers as the anti-national and anti Hindu activities are being carried out in the campus.

"The University has been a centre of communism-related activities. They abuse our religion and our nation. This would not be tolerated," Pinki said.

"We will carry out such attacks in the future as well. If our religion and our nation are being disrespected, then how we remain silent?" he asked.

The Hindu Raksha Dal grabbed the headlines in 2014 when it had attacked the office of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Kaushambi. One of the group's leader, Bhupender Tomar, was arrested for allegedly vandalising the premises owned by the Arvind Kejriwal-led party.
