At around 13:00 (local time), ABVP students marched from the JNU Tapti Hostel area towards the JNU campus. The DUD marched from the Mandi House towards the Ministry of Human Resources Development.
A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions were reported along the march route. Further protest are likely to take place in the coming days.

Individuals in New Delhi are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public gatherings as a precaution, budget additional time for travel, anticipate transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
