Kashmiri students beaten up in Chittorgarh

Jaipur, April 20

Six Kashmiri students studying at Mewar University in Rajasthan's Chittorgarh district were allegedly thrashed by a group of unidentified locals, the police said today.

The reason for the assault was not clear immediately. The students received minor injuries in the attack, the police said.

“The incident happened on Wednesday evening when the students were in a market to purchase household items. Four or five unidentified persons asked the students their names and permanent address and thrashed them,” said Gangrar Station House officer Dinesh Kumar.

“We are investigating the reason behind the incident,” he said.

The Gangrar police station registered a case against the unidentified accused yesterday for voluntarily causing hurt and wrongful confinement. A search has been launched for the accused.

The victims were taken to a hospital from where they were discharged after primary treatment.

The Gangrar SHO said there were nearly 500 students from Kashmir and 300 from Jammu studying at Mewar University.

Last year, some Kashmiri students of Mewar University were attacked over rumours that they had cooked beef in their hostel. --- PTI
