Pooja Singh, Lawyer

They climbed the barricades and broke some with lathis. They torched some of the barricades. Before we knew what was happening, they began hurling stones and mud at the police

Tanya Abraham, Delhi University student

A group of seven to eight policemen surrounded me and hit me till I collapsed. After that my friends brought me to the hospital.

Mayur Dhwaj, Protester

There were goons who were attacking police with bricks, stones and lathis. They attacked buses and smashed them. But there were several who were protesting peacefully, and police attacked them as well. The use of force was excessive

Anmol Sharma, Student of Hansraj College

Look at these hooligans. They have crushed a government vehicle and are starting a fire near it. They have broken the metal grills and are hurling the piece at us. Not just stones, they are also throwing bamboo sticks
