At least 30 students and teachers were injured after they were attacked by masked men in New Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University on Sunday.

Images on social media show a masked mob entering the Sabarmati and Periyar hostels on JNU campus and assaulting several students and professors with sticks and stones.

Witnesses said that the violence came at around 7pm local time after a public meeting organised by the JNU Teachers Association in connection with a rise in hostel charges for students that was announced a few weeks ago.

The student union blamed the violence on the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), a right-wing student group linked to India's governing BJP political party.

But the ABVP said that some of its members had been attacked by left-wing groups and injured.

"I have been brutally attacked by goons wearing masks. I am bleeding. I was brutally beaten up," JNU Students' Union (JNUSU) president Aishe Ghosh told reporters.

"These were not small stones, these were big stones that could have broken our skulls," JNU's Professor Atul Sood told NDTV.

"I fell on the side and when I came out, I saw cars completely vandalised, including my car."

The professor said the violence was unlike anything the university had seen before.

India’s education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank condemned the violence, calling it “extremely worrying and unfortunate".

Delhi chief minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal tweeted: "I am so shocked to know about the violence at JNU.

"Students attached brutally. Police should immediately stop violence and restore peace. How will the country progress if our students will not be safe inside univ campus?”
