News agency ANI reported that at least 40 people, including police personnel, were injured during clashes on Thursday. The cops also used teargas shells.

The students were protesting police inaction against members of right-wing organisation Hindu Yuva Vahini (HYV) who barged into the varsity on Wednesday.

The HYV members were protesting the presence of Jinnah's portrait in AMU and their protest was organized moments before former vice-president Hamid Ansari was to participate in an event in AMU.

Five companies of the Rapid Action Force have been deployed outside the university to prevent any law and order situation.

Meanwhile, speaking about the clashes in AMU, the Islamic Organisation of India (IOI) held a press conference and said that the disruptions on Wednesday show that the BYV had the "agenda to attack Ansari". The organization also termed it to be a serious security lapse.

Protests break out over Jinnah portrait at AMU , police cane students . The controversy over a portrait of Pakistan’s founder Jinnah started on Tuesday when Satish Gautam, Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Aligarh, wrote to AMU vice chancellor Tariq Mansoor and sought a justification for it.

Maurya reportedly praised him when asked to comment on the row sparked by another BJP MP Satish Gautam, who had objected to Jinnah 's portrait being displayed at AMU . “The AMU administration and the students there are patriotic and there is no question of raising questions over their patriotism

"What kind of justice is this where students were not allowed to register FIR and forced to leave the police station?" IOI said.

The organisation has demanded an inquiry into the clashes headed by a retired judge.

"AMU has been a harmonious campus where Hindu and Muslim students have studied peacefully for years. But now they [right-wing groups] are trying to change the varsity's environment," it said. The controversy was triggered when BJP MP from Aligarh Satish Gautam wrote a letter to AMU vice-chancellor questioning the rationale for installing Jinnah's portrait in the university.

AMU students have also started an indefinite hunger strike. On Thursday, the Aligarh Muslim Students Union (AMUSU) said, "Our protest will continue indefinitely till the police take action against those who were actually targeting the former vice-president [Ansari] who had come to AMU where he was to be granted a life membership of the students union."

AMUSU president Mashkoor Ahmad Usmani said they are likely to approach the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) if the state government closes all doors, news agency PTI reported. Meanwhile, HYV state-in-charge Raghvendra Singh demanded that those responsible for putting up Jinnah's portrait should be booked under charges of sedition.
