JAIPUR: Members of BJP-backed ABVP and Congress' student wing NSUI today clashed during their protests on the JNU row outside Rajasthan University campus here.

The groups of students clashed at the main gate of the University. They were holding their respective protests and demonstration on the issue of JNU when the incident occurred, Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) K Rastradeep said.

Police later dispersed the protestors, the DCP said, adding no one was injured in the incident and the situation was normal now.

"We were protesting to demand that the main accused in the JNU incident should be arrested because there are no evidence against the JNU students union president Kanhaiya Kumar," NSUI leader Rakesh Meena said.

"We were also demanding action against BJP MLA Kailash Choudhary who made derogatory remarks against (Congress vice president) Rahul Gandhi when the ABVP activists clashed with us," Meena, who led the NSUI protest, said.
