After clash, cops deployed outside Khalsa college
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.
