New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday sought the arrest of ABVP activists blamed for violence in Delhi University and said Lt Governor Anil Baijal had promised “strict action”.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader tweeted that he met Baijal and demanded the arrest of “those who caused violence in DU, shouted anti-India slogans and who threatened (student) Gurmehar (Kaur).
“He (Baijal) assured strict action,” Kejriwal said.
Kejriwal’s meeting followed the February 22 attacks on students, lecturers and journalists in the Delhi University campus for which the Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has been blamed.
The violence came a day after the ABVP forced Ramjas College in the campus to cancel a seminar.
Later, when student Gurmehar Kaur of Lady Shri Ram College launched a social media campaign against the RSS-affiliated ABVP, she received death and rape threats, triggering widespread condemnation.
