The Delhi Police said it has registered a case of sexual harassment and criminal intimidation against unknown persons in connection with the "rape threats" allegedly received by Kaur. The case was registered following Kaur's complaint to the Delhi Commission for Women.

The Delhi Police has also requested their Jalandhar counterpart to provide adequate security to Kaur.

In a related development, the National Human Rights Commission today issued a notice to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik over allegations of "police excesses" at North Campus and "threats" received by some students on social media.

In a statement, the Commission said the notice has been issued on a complaint that police personnel attacked a female student and snatched cameras from media persons, who were recording the incident outside Ramjas College.

"Allegedly, some journalists, covering clashes, were slapped, punched and kicked by the policemen. The Commission has taken on record complaints as well as media reports making similar allegations including threats to some students on social media," the NHRC said.

JNU student Kanhaiya Kumar, who is out on bail in a sedition case, also joined the anti-ABVP protest march at DU.

"You (ABVP) can't enforce one particular ideology on anyone and their should be room for discussion," he said while addressing the protesters.

The ongoing row in Delhi University reverberated at a meeting of a Parliamentary Standing Committee, which questioned Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik, leading to registration of an FIR in the case.

The Delhi University issue was vociferously raised by Opposition members at the meeting of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Home Affairs, headed by senior Congress leader P Chidambaram, amid protests by ruling BJP members, who claimed that the issue cannot be discussed at the meeting.

However, Chidambaram ruled that the Committee can indeed discuss the issue as it may be raised even in both Houses of Parliament and allowed members to speak on it.

The MPs asked Commissioner of Delhi Police what action has he taken on threat given to DU student Gurmehar Kaur, who is the daughter of a martyred Army officer, sources said.

The Members also asked whether security has been provided to the girl, they said.

The Commissioner of Police explained the MPs about the prevailing situation in the Varsity and action taken so far for maintaining peace.

Within an hour of his being quizzed, Patnaik conveyed to the MPs that an FIR has been registered against unknown persons in connection with Kaur's complaint that she was receiving "rape threats" allegedly from ABVP members.
