JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh was brutally beaten up by masked ABVP goons inside the university premises, along with thousands of students. Reports also emerged of women trapped inside the hostels being attacked by these masked goons with acid. Pictures of these masked goons carrying not just iron rods but other deadly weapons have also emerged," the press note by JCC read.
Further, the JCC demanded registration of an FIR in this regard and action against the perpetrators of violence in the JNU campus.
