As many as 25 students of Bachelor of Science (BSc) were injured when two groups clashed at Motilal Vigyan Mahavidyalaya (MVM) in Bhopal on Monday. Two of them sustained serious injuries and were admitted to Hamidia Hospital.
According to college sources, the clash was a result of some unknown, old dispute between the groups of students.
The students had come to appear for their practical examination when the conflict broke out.
Faculty members of the college intervened and took the hostile students to the principal’s chamber where they started attacking each other with hockey sticks and wooden sticks.
Some students also took out tube lights from the wall and attacked the rival groups.
Later, police reached the college and took control over the situation.
Students Ravi Dangi and Deepak Pandey sustained serious injuries in the attack. Deepak Pandey had lodged a complaint with police, who have registered the case against unidentified students and are trying to nab the accused.
Jehangirabad, town inspector, Ghanshyam Dangi said, “A BSc student Deepak Pandey has lodged complaint with police against some students. Police are trying to nab the miscreants. Prima facie, the reason behind the clash is not known yet.”
MVM in-charge principal VK Punwatkar said an action into the matter would be taken only after sending show cause notices tp the accused students post identification.
