The protests led to clashes between the police and students and left several injured. Some students also protested at the gate of the University demanding action against Delhi Police for their alleged 'crackdown' on protesters.

On the other hand, Delhi Police has claimed that several policemen including senior police officials were injured in the violence and stone-pelting carried out by unruly agitators.
