A student hailing from Kashmir's Sopore area was beaten up by some fellow students near the campus of a private university in Haryana's Ambala district, police said today.

The student, aged around 19 years, was thrashed by the accused in Mullana town in Ambala yesterday after which the university ordered suspension of one of the students.

"The student, who is pursuing an undergraduate course in radiology in the university located in Mullana town (near Ambala) and the other group of students had entered into an argument over some matter earlier," SHO, Mullana Police Station, Inspector Rajesh Kumar said over phone.

The student from Kashmir sustained minor injury on his nose while the main accused suffered some scratches on his back, he said. Kumar said the university administration had ordered the suspension of one of the youths allegedly involved in the incident.

The latest incident comes close on the heels of a similar incident in which two university students, residents of Jammu and Kashmir, were beaten up by some people in Haryana's Mahendragarh.
