An FIR for Sunday’s attack has been registered against unknown persons for rioting.
No arrests have been made despite the fact that the police were present when the attackers carrying sticks walked out of the JNU campus, notes a report in The Hindu.
Human Rights group Amnesty International India has condemned police inaction. Sikh groups namely, Dal Khalsa and Shiromani Akali Dal Amritsar (Mann) have alleged that the attack was handiwork of Indian Home Minister Amit Shah.
Opinionists and Columnists have termed Sunday’s attack on JNU students as a big blot on India’s ‘reputation’ and ‘democracy’ while demanding an inquiry under the supervision of Supreme Court of India.
