Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Monday condemned the attack on students and teachers at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi on Sunday evening and urged law enforcement agencies to take swift action to apprehend the culprits.
Patnaik said such attacks on students must be condemned unequivocally.
“Shocked to know about the violent #JNUattack. Violence has no space in democracy and such attacks on students must be condemned unequivocally. Appeal law enforcement agencies to take swift action to apprehend the culprits and wish the injured students a speedy recovery,” tweeted Patnaik.
Notably, violence broke out at JNU on Sunday night after a group of masked men armed with sticks attacked students and teachers and damaged property on the campus. Around 20 students of the university, including Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) president Aishe Ghosh, were injured and were taken to the AIIMS Trauma Centre after the miscreants attacked them.
