Peeved over not being able to meet the Vice Chancellor to discuss issues related to the compulsory attendance order, some students had conducted a gherao of the JNU's administration block on Thursday.

Hundreds of students, led by the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU), also picketed outside all the gates of the building and confronted and stopped senior university officials who tried to go out.

Two FIRs have been registered against the JNU students for wrongful restraint of two rectors in the administration block on Thursday, a senior police officer said.

"Based on two separate complaints filed by the officials, two FIRs have been registered with the Vasant Kunj North Police Station," the police officer said.

One more FIR has been filed against students who blocked the road near the administration office, demanding withdrawal of compulsory attendance ruling of the university.
