Parambrata Chattopadhyay also condemned the attack:



Actress Swastika Mukherjee lo llamó un ataque sistemático contra la sociedad civil. Ella wrote: “Este es un ataque sistemático contra la sociedad civil. El gobierno y las personas en el poder son facilitadores de esto. Si los estudiantes y los maestros no están seguros en los campus, dentro de sus albergues, ¿qué garantía tenemos de la seguridad de alguien? ¡Despierta la democracia! Únete a la protesta AHORA .



National Award winning director Srijit Mukherjee also wrote: “Yeh gham ke aur chaar din, sitam ke aur chaar din, Yeh din bhi jayenge guzar, guzar gaye hazaar din Kabhi toh hogi is chaman mein bhi baahar ki nazar Agar kahin bhi swarg ho utaar laa zameen par Tu zinda hai ... Stay strong, Alma Mater. #StandWith JNU
