“As soon as we started the event, ABVP activists led by DUSU president Amit Tanwar started a parallel protest rally. They forcefully entered our event venue and started beating up students.The police also failed to stop them. Kawalpreet Kaur, the presidential candidate of AISA and another woman activist were hurt,” a statement issued by AISA said.

Denying all allegations, the ABVP, said three of their activists were beaten up and had to be taken to a hospital. They blamed AISA for the violence. Neither group, however, filed a police complaint.
