SRINAGAR: A group of students from Kashmir valley, studying in a private college in a Haryana town, have alleged they were thrashed by some of their peers.
Studying in an engineering college in Panchkula, they said they were attacked last Sunday by some students from the same college who also called them “anti-nationals”.
They told reporters that some of them were injured in the attack by their college-mates who, they alleged, had been harassing them for quite sometime over their origin.
When contacted, DCP (Rural) Ambala Naznin Bhasin said the police were looking into the matter.
“We are verifying details (of the incident of attack),” she said.
The college management termed the incident as a minor one and said the matter had been amicably resolved.
A student said some of them had left their hostel fearing more such attacks.
The college chairman said some 20 students had decided to leave their hostel rooms but half of them later changed their minds. Agencies
