HT Ludhiana Live - - City - HT Live Cor­re­spon­dent ludlivedesk@hin­dus­tan­ LUD­HI­ANA:

Fi­nally, po­lice have taken a stand in the wake of a clash be­tween students of Guru Nanak Khalsa Col­lege at Sham Singh road by de­ploy­ing force at both gates of the col­lege. How­ever, they have not reg­is­tered any case into the clash as no com­plaint has been re­ceived from any group.

Mean­while, po­lice have asked stu­dent union lead­ers to re­move posters from the walls with im­me­di­ate ef­fect. They have been also talk­ing to the col­lege au­thor­i­ties on the is­sue of hold­ing stu­dent union elec­tions in the col­lege.

Res­i­dents of Sham Singh road are irked over the nui­sance cre­ated by students in the street. They held a protest in the street and wrote to po­lice to re­move il­le­gally parked ve­hi­cles from the street.

The po­lice cracked whip on ve­hi­cles parked in the street and towed away around 30 ve­hi­cles. They have also asked students to park their ve­hi­cles inside the col­lege.

Ac­cord­ing to area res­i­dents Ra­jiv Kaushal, Dr Tir­lok Ag­gar­wal, SP Jain, Vikram Sharma, ad­vo­cate Yo­gesh­war Sharma and Manu Dhawan, the nui­sance cre­ated by students was rou­tine. “Students park ve­hi­cles out­side our gates be­cause of which are not able to move our ve­hi­cles. It feels as if we are un­der house ar­rest,” said one of them.

Ac­cord­ing to Mukhtiar Singh, he has wit­nessed stone-pelt­ing among students. Many students barged into his house and started threat­en­ing him af­ter he asked them to stop cre­at­ing nui­sance.

Division num­ber 8 po­lice sta­tion house of­fi­cer ( SHO) Ran­jit Singh said force had been de­puted at the col­lege. The po­lice party has been asked to re­move wrongly parked ve­hi­cles from out­side the col­lege.

They had a long con­ver­sa­tion with the col­lege au­thor­i­ties over the is­sue. The po­lice have been wait­ing for a com­plaint. If no one comes for­ward with a com­plaint, po­lice would ini­ti­ate ac­tion af­ter tak­ing le­gal opin­ion.

A brawl be­tween two groups of students of Arya Col­lege had bro­ken out in front of the col­lege. The po­lice im­me­di­ately reached the spot and brought sit­u­a­tion un­der con­trol. Later, po­lice also is­sued a warn­ing to both groups. The SHO said it was a mi­nor is­sue and had been re­solved am­i­ca­bly.
