Groups of students from Bihar, Jharkhand and Kashmir entered into a clash at Gulzar Group of Institutes in Khanna on Sunday leaving four of them injured.
The clash took place in the mess when breakfast was being served. However, the groups struck a compromise in the evening and no case was registered.
Students from Bihar and Jharkhand alleged that the group of 25 students from Kashmiri used to provoke them by raising pro-Pakistan slogans. Denying allegations, a Kashmiri student said they never raised slogans in favour of Pakistan. “We are being bullied after the Uri attack,” said a Kashmiri student.
Police have been deployed on the college campus after the incident. Khanna senior superintendent of police (SSP) Satinder Singh and deputy superintendent of police (DSP) Jagwinder Singh Cheema recorded statements of injured, warden and the college director, but no FIR was registered.
DSP Cheema said: “A student tried to jump the queue in the mess during breakfast and they had an argument. There was minor clash. Injured students are okay now and no pro-Pak slogans were raised.”
Institute’s administrative officer Raman Chadha said the matter has been resolved.
