They attacked advocate Kukreja, lawyer of Bhim Army, on his eyes and thrashed the reporter of The Quint news channel. After that , women activists of ABVP came and started abusing the students and tried to harass women activists. Heights of brutality surmounted when police tried to physically molest comrade Sangeeta ,when she was trying to save Comrade Monika,who is under medical treatment. Monika, Rajveer,Parvathy were dragged by the Delhi police.
The Delhi Police that was at the spot remained mute spectators while the attack on students went on.
