“From past several days, we have enhanced security in the campus to make sure that innocent students are not hurt,” he said.

The VC met with the protesting JNU students who are demanding the V-C’s resignation over fee hike and violence on campus.

Five days have passed since the mob attack in several hostels of JNU, however, no arrests have been made so far.

“We don’t differentiate students into camps, all students are the same for us. When there is a possibility of violence we will definitely act and we did,” he said.
