Jamia Millia Islamia on Wednesday said that the university will take action against protesting students after violence erupted in the campus as the administration stopped the screening of BBC's controversial documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Students started protesting against the Jamia management after they cut the electrity supply in the campus so that the screening of the two-part documentary cannot take place.

There was a massive ruckus outside the Jamia premises with student raising slogans against the college authorities. Four students have been detained by the Delhi police so far.

Security has been beefed at Jamia following the protests. The situation remains tense.

"SFI (Students Federation of India) wants to disturb peace on campus; will never allow this behaviour.

"Jamia will take action against students, if necessary, for disrupting peace on campus," said Vice Chancellor Najma Akhtar.
