On Sunday afternoon, the JNU campus had turned into a warzone where masked goons had chased and attacked students and teachers, entered hostels and created havoc.

Speaking to OpIndia, Valentina said that the attack happened on 5th January 2020, Sunday when leftist students stopped students from registering for the winter semester. She further stated that some of these goons had hidden stones under their shawls and attacked the ABVP students with stones and sticks.

Valentina had further revealed that they were hiding away in Periyar Hostel to save themselves from the fury of leftist students. However, about 30 violent students tried to break open the door of the hostel to unleash violence against the ABVP students. They were wearing masks and holding sticks in their hands, she had said.

On Sunday, a mob of masked people unleashed violence inside JNU injuring 35 students and faculty members. The group of armed people brutally attacked students and teachers of the varsity with sticks, stones and iron rods, and also vandalised windows, furniture and personal belongings.

Prior to that, on January 4, leftist groups had tried to stop students from registering for the winter semester. The students had disrupted the registration process for the winter semester by barging into the Centre for Information System office and cut off the power supply and damaged the servers to protest against the fee hike.

The Delhi Police have now filed an FIR against JNUSU President Aishe Ghosh and 19 others for attacking security guards and vandalizing server room on January 4.
