The students were joined in the Christmas celebrations by social activists, religious leaders, priests, and the local community members.

A student dressed up as Santa Claus was carrying a poster which read, ''Merry Christmas everyone apart from Delhi Police'', expressing the students'' anger towards the force for its alleged brutality on them on December 15 when the police personnel had entered the campus and lathi-charged" them after violent protests outside.
