Kanhaiya, Khalid march in Justice for DU
Thousands of students, teachers, civil society members joined the "Justice for DU: Citizens March to Parliament' protesting and demanding action against the ABVP who they alleged created violence in Ramjas College last month. The protesters who marched from Mandi House to Parliament reiterated their demand of immediate arrest of the perpetrators and strict action against them.

The students participating in the march accused the Delhi Police of siding with the ABVP and doing little to nail the accused who was allegedly indulged in last month's violence in DU. The incident also compelled President Pranab Mukherjee to issue an statement.

The march was also addressed by Sitaram Yechury, K Can Tiyagi, Yogendra Yadav, Jignesh Mevani and Kavita Krishnan. The march was also attended by student leader Kanhaiya Kumar. Umar Khalid too, addressed the protesters briefly. Missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmed's mother also attended the protest march.

Kawalpreet Kaur, President of AISA said: "We will not let ABVP go away with this violence. The entire university had seen them rioting but the police failed to name even a single person in their FIR. We will take this struggle further and organise bigger events in DU in the coming days if the police continue its inaction. Also, we demand the proctor to put up an inquiry against the ABVP activists who carried out such violence and continues to vilify the academic atmosphere of the campus"
