Students, NGO Members Clash

Jammu, Aug 10: Tension gripped Jammu University campus after a clash broke out between a group of students and members of a civil society in the University campus, this afternoon.
Official sources said that Police later registered a case under section 107/151 RPC against two persons, including a female scholar of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), for allegedly creating trouble in the campus. Both the persons, however, were bailed out, later in the evening.
The trouble erupted when a group of students arrived at the University Cafeteria, where the members of an NGO (who had organised signature camping against Kashmir killings in the morning) were having lunch.
Eyewitnesses said that the JNU scholar objected to the alleged attempt by one of the student to take pictures with his mobile phone. “At first instance we ignored the student and when we objected to this, all the students attacked us and gave severe thrashing to us,” one of the NGO member alleged adding that two of them received injuries in the attack.
However, the students countered the allegation saying that they were attacked by the `outsiders’ without any provocation. “One of our friend was talking on phone when the outsiders accused him of taking pictures”, Rakesh Chib, president Jammu University Research Scholars Executive Association (JURSEA) alleged.
He said that Surohi Nandan, who is running an NGO, and a JNU scholar Vensessa Chisti attacked the student and gave him severe thrashing.
Immediately after receiving the information, a police party led by Incharge police post Nehru Market rushed to the spot and arrested the NGO member and JNU scholar. Both of them were later booked for “creating nuisance.”
After a high-voltage drama on Jammu University campus, the agitating students also rushed to the Gandhi Nagar Police Station and demanded action against the ‘outsiders’ who allegedly assaulted the students.
