Srinagar, June 05: J&K Students Association Sunday condemned the “unwarranted and unjustified” attack on a group of Kashmiri students who were ruthlessly beaten by students from other states, after a scuffle ensued between them in Swami Vivekananda Institute of Engineering & Technology (SVIET), which falls in Banur area of district Mohali.
In a statement the national vice-president of Association Mehraj Ahmad said that the students from other states ended up brawling with Kashmiri students when they had queued for food in a mess. Subsequently, after the brawl, a group of Kashmiri students was thrashed.
As per the victims they were assaulted with bricks and iron rods, leaving two of them injured.
He urged Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann for stern action against the accused. Association is highly dissatisfied with the callous approach of college authorities.
State Secretary Punjab Sheikh Azhar said that after Kashmiri students were beaten, instead of action against the culprits, the Kashmiri students were chastised and fined. These two injured students were told by college authorities to leave the college, which is highly condemnable. He demanded a probe and immediate arrest of all those involved in the assault on Kashmiri students.
