Mumbai: More students from various colleges in Mumbai joined the protest at the Gateway of India here Monday morning to condemn the violence at the Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.
The students shouted slogans condemning the violence. Earlier, as the protest began Sunday midnight, a group of students held a candlelight vigil to show solidarity with the JNU students.
Youngsters, mostly students from different colleges in Mumbai, assembled on pavement across the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel near the Gateway of India to condemn the violence.
It was an “impromptu assembly at a short notice”, a student said.
Violence broke out in JNU Sunday night as masked men armed with sticks and rods attacked students and teachers and damaged property on the campus, prompting the administration to call in police which conducted a flag march.
