Students from J&K arrested in Raj, suspended by univ
Nine students and a hostel warden from Jammu and Kashmir were arrested, following a clash in the hostel mess of a private university in Rajasthan’s Chittorgarh district over the Indian cricket team’s loss against West Indies in the T20 World Cup last week.
The Mewar University on Wednesday said it had suspended the nine students, who were released on bail on Monday, along with seven others for creating nuisance on the univesity premises on March 31.
“Sixteen students have been suspended till April 25. The accused students created ruckus in the hostel, which led to a scuffle, in which one student was injured. Nine students were arrested in connection with the incident,” Harish Gurnani, media officer of Mewar University, said.
“They were released on bail on Monday after which we took disciplinary action against the students,” he said.
All of them are undergraduate students and have been asked to report after April 24 with their guardians, he said.
