Students subjected to cowardly but planned attack: NCP chief Sharad Pawar

NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Monday said JNU students were subjected to a "cowardly and planned attack", adding that use of violence to suppress democratic values won't succeed. Pawar's remarks came as his party minister Jitendra Awhad joined the students protesting the violence, at the Gateway of India in Mumbai.

"JNU students and professors were subjected to a cowardly but planned attack. I strongly condemn this undemocratic act of vandalism and violence. Use of violent means to suppress democratic values and thought will never succeed," Pawar tweeted.
