NEW DELHI: The DRH ministry sought an immediate report from Pramod Kumar on the campus situation on Sunday after masked men armed with sticks attacked students and teachers and damaged property there.

We have sought an immediate report from the registrar about the situation on campus. We have spoken with vice and Delhi police officers to ensure that peace is maintained on campus, officials told PTI.

Violence broke out at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Sunday night when masked men armed with sticks attacked students and teachers and damaged property on campus, which led the administration to call the police.

At least 18 people were injured and admitted to the Institute of Medical Sciences of All India (AIIMS). The president of the JNU Student Union, Aishe Ghosh, suffered a head injury.

The JNUSU controlled by the left and the ABVP blamed each other for the violence that continued for almost two hours.
