They did not detain any ABVP students. All of them have been released by the police with a warning." The detained students were taken to Sector 11 police station. They were released by late evening. Inspector Rajeev Kumar from the Sector 11 police station said that "The ABVP students had booked the place to protest, so NSUI members shouldn’t have put up its own posters. This could have potentially incite more violence." -PTC News
