Kolkata: Tension mounts in Kolkata's Jadavpur University as a massive gathering of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) supporters tried to storm into the varsity protesting last week's clashes.

On Monday, ABVP activists organised a massive rally protesting the heckling of Union Minister Babul Supriyo, who visited JU last week to attend an event hosted by the party.

Kolkata Police stopped ABVP cadres from entering the university, and the protesters tried to break police barricades to enter the varsity.
