Jaipur, April 21

Two youths were arrested on Friday for allegedly beating two Kashmiri students of Mewat University.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje followed Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s appeal and said in a tweet, “Kashmiri students are our children. The Police have taken prompt action and apprehended the culprits”.  

Abdul Rufwar and Adil Ayub studying at Mewat University in Chittorgarh district had gone to Gangwar town, 7 km from the varsity campus, for shopping on Wednesday when two local youths on a bike asked for more space on the road.

A quarrel ensued following which they were beaten up, SHO Gangrar Thana Dinesh Sukhwal told The Tribune on Friday.

The victims filed an FIR with the Gangrar Thana in the wee hours of Thursday alleging that six Kashmiri students were injured in the scuffle with the two boys, the SHO said.

Police immediately arrested the two youths — Manish and Sohan Lal, both 25 years old, under Section 323 and 341 of the IPC and 151 of the CrPC, he said.
