"Friends, ABVP does it again. First they tried to impose non veg ban to everybody in Kaveri Hostel, and when common students stood up against #FoodFascism, the Sanghi goons resorted to all out violence. Students are facing serious wounds," tweeted the All India Students Association (AISA). Pictures of wounded students were also shared.

According to a statement from AISA, Akhtarista Ansari, Madhurima Kundu and N Sai Balaji from AISA are severely wounded by the ABVP attack.

"Hundreds of JNU students march against ABVP's hooliganism in JNU. The gherao of Vasant Kunj Police Station Delhi continues. Attack on the freedom to eat and wear will not work. Delhi Police will have to take action against Sanghi goons," said AISA in another tweet.

ABVP accused left parties of dragging ABVP into the issue as part of their propaganda to get media attention. It also accused left parties of politicising a religious celebration.
