Kashmiri student assaulted in Greater Noida university
A Kashmir student was injured after he was ruthlessly beaten on Thursday by a group of students at Sharda University at Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh.
Talking to Greater Kashmir over phone from the university, a student said that Ahtisham who is pursuing bachelors in Medical Imaging Technology (BMIT) was later admitted at Sharda hospital.
The student, who didn't wish to be named, said that Ahtisham was injured when a scuffle broke out between the local and Afghani students on the university campus.
"A group of students ruthlessly beat up Ahtesham, leaving him badly injured," he said.
Following the attack, the Kashmiri students are feeling insecure in the varsity.
Another student told Greater Kashmir that the local students were asking them to show their identities. "We have kept ourselves confined to the varsity premises. We are not feeling safe at Sharda University now," he said.
A University official confirmed the incident, saying they were ascertaining the details.
