The mob attack at the Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi has sparked massive outrage across the nation with protests erupting at universities in several states against the violence.
On Sunday evening, a mob barged into the campus, went on a rampage, attacking students' union president Aishe Ghosh and other students and teachers with sticks and rods.
Students and faculty members of JNU allege that police personnel and private security guards on the campus remained "mute spectators" as the masked attackers went on the rampage. They have also been accused of letting the attackers slip out.
Thirty-four students and teachers were admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences on Sunday with injuries.
Today, the Delhi Police said it has identified some of the masked assailants and a complaint has been filed.
