Of the 36 people injured during the violence at Jawaharlal Nehru University Sunday, four suffered head injuries while the others sustained soft tissue injuries on the head, scalp, elbows and hands. The injured were treated at the AIIMS Trauma Centre and discharged Monday morning.

More than 24 hours later though, their attackers were still at large.

Depending on the nature of injuries, the hospital divided patients into three categories — red, yellow and green. Called triage, (a French word meaning to “sort” by priority or life-threatening nature of injury), this method is followed to expedite treatment to those seriously injured.
