New Delhi, January 5, 2020:Violence broke out in Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) today evening. Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Union President Aishe Ghosh, who got injured in the violence, said she was attacked by "goons wearing masks". A group of masked goons entered the campus and went on a rampage, targeting teachers and students.

A video showed blood dripping from Ghosh's head after she was ruthlessly thrashed. "I've been brutally attacked by those who were masked. I don't know, I have been bleeding. I am not even in a condition to talk. I was brutally beaten up," the JNUSU president said, following which she was rushed to a hospital. A professor, Sucharita Sen, has also been admitted to AIIMS with head injury.

In a statement, the Students' Union alleged that "ABVP had been attacking students who are peacefully protesting against massive fee hike in JNU".

Some students claimed that DUSU president from ABVP, Satender Awana, was also seen on the campus.

An Aam Aadmi Party worker claimed that seven ambulances have been sent to JNU and other vehicles are on standby.

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal accused police of violence and appealed to restore peace.
