At least three persons were injured in stone-pelting during a clash between members of Left parties and BJYM and ABVP in Muzaffarpur over cancellation of a programme called “Main JNU hoon” in support of JNU Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar.

After the Muzaffarpur administration withdrew permit to the function, being organised by the Left parties, over 100 CPI (ML) and CPI workers started holding a programme in front of the venue and later clashed with BJYM and ABVP workers. FIRs against unknown persons were filed from both sides.

The incident took place around 12.30 pm when Left workers reached the Amrapali auditorium. CPI (ML) district secretary Suraj Kumar said: “When we reached the venue, we saw a notice regarding last-minute cancellation of our programme. We wanted to express solidarity with JNU after the Kanhaiya episode. We started holding our function outside the venue and faced stone pelting from BJYM and ABVP workers.”
