The sports in-charge of Chaudhury Charan Singh University was beaten up on Monday after he objected to a girls’ hockey team from taking part in an event.

The girls’ hockey team from NAS College had arrived for the event two days late and the CCS University coach, Gulab Singh Ruhel, did not let them take part in the competition. The girls protested and there was a verbal duel between the girls and Ruhel.

Seeing the altercation, a group of students joined in and asked the girls to mind their manners when talking to a coach.

Things went out of hand then.

Another group accused the first one of abusing the girls over caste and there was a free-for-all. Even the girls were beaten up.

Furious students then vented their ire on Ruhel. So much so that he had run and hide in his office. But the students gave chase and ransacked his office.

Later, the matter was brought into the notice of CCS University’s vice- chancellor Prof SP Ojha who constituted a five member committee headed by the chief proctor to probe into
the matter.

After medical examination both sides gave their written statement to the registrar who forwarded it to lodge FIRs from both sides.

Ruhel suffered injuries on his nose in the scuffle.

Police said Ruhel denied the charges levelled by the students and said the girls had not appeared for the trials held and as such were not included in the team.
A police contingent rushed to the campus and brought the situation under control.
