Students clash over meeting on ‘Kashmir issue’ on HCU Campus


A scuffle broke out between two groups of students on the campus of University of Hyderabad (UoH) here after a meeting on “Kashmir situation”. UoH Pro Vice-Chancellor Vipin Srivastava told PTI today that a group of around 15 students with two faculty members gathered at a shopping complex in the campus to conduct a meeting on Kashmir issue, even though the University Security Officer asked them not to hold any kind of meeting. ABVP alleges that some students raised slogans in support of slain Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani. As a counter, ABVP shouted ‘Bharat Mata ki jai’.

One of the ABVP members reportedly suffered a fracture in his leg and was later rushed to a private hospital in the city. A complaint has been lodged by Sushil Kumar against Amol Singh and others under various IPC sections.
While the officials did not reveal much about the incident, police remain tight-lipped about the incident.
Meanwhile, Vipin Srivastava, Pro Vice-Chancellor of the UoH, said, “We are yet to decide what has to be done in this matter. However, we have issued a notice – “Classes are starting from tomorrow and new students are also joining and I want to reassure the parents of the wards nothing to worry about it.”
