On Monday 27 February Students in Delhi protested at the city’s police headquarters after attacks at Delhi University campus carried out by nationalist student group ABVP, an affiliate of the far-right Hindu organisation Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), that is inked to Prime Minister Modi’s BJP party

Amnesty International India said there was a “growing threat to freedom of expression on Indian university campuses”.

“Universities are supposed to be safe spaces for debate and discussion. But the events at Ramjas College are a shameful reminder of how intimidation and threats continue to restrict free speech on university campuses,” Aakar Patel, head of Amnesty International India, said in a statement.
