“FTII, Rohith case, Hyderabad University, IITs and now brutal attack on Delhi students. Modi govt seems to be at war with students all across,” Kejriwal, who is undergoing naturopathy treatment at Bengaluru, tweeted.

Police today faced widespread criticism over a video clip that shows the alleged assault on the students by male police constables and some men who are not in uniform. The clip has gone viral on various social media sites.

In the short video clip, a constable is seen dragging a female protester by her hair and pushing her down. A youth is also seen being bashed.

Two journalists, who have alleged that they were beaten up and their cameras smashed while covering the protest, claimed that the police action was “unprovoked”.

          Oh Kujli dear, it seems some medicine has shown a lttle relief to start shouting nonsense. People in Delhi had some rest from day to day ranting but seems that everyone has to undergo some more punishment to listen to your abuses and your party nautanki for some more time.Evil if not nipped in the bud prove a dangerous malady. Perhaps that is in store for the people who had made a grave mistake and got befoord by Apptaed tricks.Stop useless rant as this has become every day affair and has no effect on anyone.
