It is an act of impunity, it can only happen with the support of the government: Chidambaram on the JNU clash

NEW DELHI: It is shocking and horrifying to see the live broadcast of masked men entering and attacking students, Congress leader P Chidambaram said Sunday and said that such an act of impunity can only happen with government support.

A confrontation broke out between members of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and Sunday on the university campus.

The left-wing student union and ABVP blamed each other for the attack.

What we are watching on live TV is shocking and horrible. Masked men enter JNU shelters and attack the students. What is the police doing? Where is the police commissioner? The former finance minister tweeted.

If it is happening on live television, it is an act of impunity and can only happen with the support of the government. This is amazing, he wrote on the microblogging site.
