On Wednesday dozens of lawyers attacked protesters who have been demanding the release of a university student leader arrested under colonial-era sedition laws. Many of the lawyers have links to India's ruling nationalist party. The clashes began shortly before a court hearing for Kanhaiya Kumar. Kumar is the president of the students' union at the country's premier Jawaharlal Nehru University. The left-leaning campus leader has been in prison since Friday over his participation in events where anti-India slogans were allegedly shouted.
