Congress Spokesperson Alleges ABVP Attack on Anand Sharma

Congress member RS Surjewala has alleged that the members of ABVP have attacked opposition leader Anand Sharma with a sharp weapon on the JNU campus.

I had one gunman with me. There were no cops around. I received blows on my back. I realised later that I was bleeding. They were goons who ambushed me.

He has questioned if the Prime Minister is going to take action against its student group for disrupting law and order. He has also slammed the lack of protection provided by Delhi police which is run by the Centre.
