Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Monday condemned the acts of violence against students and teachers of Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi and said that judicial inquiry of the incident can be done to ascertain facts about the incident.

Taking to micro-blogging site twitter, Mayawati wrote, "Violence with students and teachers in JNU is highly condemnable and shameful. The central government should take this incident very seriously. Also, it will be better if there is a judicial inquiry into this incident." Meanwhile, Delhi Police has received multiple complaints in regard to yesterday's incident and officials would be registering the FIR soon.

Earlier on Sunday evening, more than 18 students, including JNUSU President Aishe Ghosh, were injured and taken to the AIIMS Trauma Centre after a masked mob entered the JNU and attacked them and professors with sticks and rods.

The JNU administration and political leaders, cutting across political lines, had condemned the attack on students and urged the police to take action against the perpetrators.
