A large gathering of students and teachers on Tuesday marched at the Delhi University holding placards condemning violence on campus, days after clashes at the Ramjas College involving the ABVP, a BJP-linked students’ outfit.

The protesters, including eminent academicians, shouted slogans of “Azaadi” (freedom), calling for a campus free of what they described as “gundagardi (hooliganism)”.

ABVP activists on Monday organised a ‘Tiranga’ (Tricolour) march against what they called “anti-national” activities by “left-leaning” students.

Last week, ABVP activists allegedly thrashed students and teachers at Ramjas College and vandalized rooms over an invite to Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Umar Khalid. Khalid was charged with sedition last year over an on-campus event in which anti-national slogans were raised.
