Ramjas clash: ABVP suspends two members

In the wake of the ongoing controversy post last week's scuffle at Delhi University's (DU) Ramjas College, two Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members arrested for allegedly attacking the All India Students' Association (AISA) supporters have been suspended.

The arrests took place after the duo, who participated in the protest, claimed that they were attacked by the ABVP supporters. The accused were released on bail and then suspended by the ABVP.

The students of Delhi University yesterday staged a protest against the ABVP at SGTB Khalsa College, North Campus.

The ABVP will tomorrow be organizing a peaceful demonstration in order to restore peace on the campus and to call for exclusion of the Left wing.

Putting the onus on the AISA for disruption in the campus and denying allegations of molestation, the ABVP had earlier accused the members of the former group of throwing stones and dustbins at the students protesting against the seminar being organised at the Ramjas College.

Clashes erupted last week after the ABVP students allegedly manhandled and thrashed students protesting the cancellation of an event at Ramjas College at which controversial Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student Umar Khalid was scheduled to speak.
