Another day and another round of protests in Delhi University. On Tuesday, around 2000 students and faculty members marched in the North Campus area, to protest against the violence meted out by right-wing student body ABVP, during a peaceful protest in Ramjas College last week.
Raising slogans of “ABVP khabardar”, protestors marched from Delhi University’s Khalsa College to the Faculty of Arts.
