Shamim, however, did not elaborate on the political affiliations of those arrested.

Persons reportedly carrying Trinamool Congress flags had vandalised Baker Laboratory and other departments, beat up some students and abused girl students.

This was to protest the heckling of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and manhandling of Finance Minister Amit Mitra in Delhi on April 9.
