New Delhi/Mumbai: Spontaneous protests erupted in New Delhi, Mumbai and other parts of India after "masked goons" wielding sticks, rods and sledgehammers barged into the JNU Campus Sunday and assaulted a number of students and teachers.

As many as 35 students and teachers, including profusely bleeding JNUSU President Aishe Ghosh, were rushed to AIIMS.

Soon after the video footages of the assault flooded social media and TV, hundreds of students gathered at Gateway of India in Mumbai. They were protesting against the police inaction and condemning the brutal attack on India's premier institutions.

Maharashtra Police tried to vacate the students from Gateway of India and adjoining areas. Students however refused to oblige.

"Will turn Gateway of India to Shaheen Bagh", a protester said referring to New Delhi's Shaheen Bagh where protests against CAA and NRC is being held since December 15.

Students are also protesting against vandalism against JNU students and teachers at FTII Pune, AMU Aligarh and Jadavpur University, Presidency Kolkata. Students and staff members also held impromptu demonstration in Hyderabad University.

Soon after the reports of brutal attack on JNU campus, students of Oxford University England also staged protest and solidarity march in support of the victims of the JNU assault.

Violence swept the Jawaharlal Nehru University on Sunday as several masked individuals, both male and female, thrashed students, including girls, and teachers inside the varsity campus with wooden and metal rods.

Two officer-bearers of the Jawaharal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU), including President Aishe Ghosh - who was reportedly hit over the eye with an iron rod, received severe injuries. They accused RSS' student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP) for the rampant violence in the campus.

The ABVP, on the other hand, had accused Left inclined students of vandalising the Periyar hostel and severely injuring various students present inside the hostel.
