"A verbal altercation led to a physical altercation between the supporters of both the groups," the officer said.

Earlier in the day, the SFI voiced concern over student safety in campus spaces and condemned the hooliganism demonstrated in Ramjas college. It said three SFI activists were "verbally and physically" abused by some people following an argument.

"SFI Delhi condemns the lack of student safety in campus spaces and also the hooliganism demonstrated in Ramjas college. We demand immediate and stringent action upon the perpetrators," the Left-affiliated students' body said in a statement.

It alleged that the college guards also refused to act and kept standing as mere spectators. "The attackers, who are suspected to be not bona fide students of Ramjas, were given free entry into the campus and were allowed to leave through the college gate after beating up the final-year undergraduate students, with no consequences," the statement added.
