Kashmiri students ‘beaten’ in Haryana
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Jan 21: Two Kashmiri students were injured at an engineering college in Ambala Haryana after a ‘drunken’ group of undergraduates from Himachal Pradesh allegedly beat them.
Students from Kashmir studying at Emax Group of Institutions, Ambala, Haryana complained that a group of “drunken undergraduates” attacked two of their classmates, injuring them badly.
“Our B.Tech examinations are going on right now. On Saturday when we were walking in the campus after writing our exam, a group of students from Himachal Pradesh attacked us. They beat us to the core. The students who were injured include Shahid Ahmad and Tajhar Manzoor. Both are the students of B Tech,” a candidate told Greater Kashmir over telephone.
The students alleged that they are being continuously attacked in the college. “They call us terrorists every time,” they said. “The other day we requested some students to keep the sound of music low as we were preparing for exams. But they entered our rooms and manhandled us.”
Students said when the ‘drunken’ group attacked them, the college authorities looked the other way. “We are being pushed to the wall. On one hand our students are threatened and beaten openly while on the other the college management is looking the other way,” they said.
“When we took up the matter with warden of the hostel, he told us we are miscreants. Who else we can go to now?” they asked.
Students said they were selected for B Tech under a scholarship.
When contacted, Media Manager, Emax Group of Institutions Pravesh, Sharma said he had no information regarding the matter. “Basically I have been busy in a programme for three days. I will look into the matter,” he said.
