Rajasthan: Mewar University suspends 16 Kashmiri students

The Mewar University Wednesday said it has suspended the Kashmiri students, who were released on bail on Monday, along with seven others for allegedly creating nuisance on the varsity premises on March 31.

Nine students and one employee — all from J&K — of the privately owned Mewar University were arrested on Thursday after they got into a fight after the match. The students were released on bail Monday.

"16 students have been suspended till April 25. The accused students created ruckus in the hostel which led to scuffle in which one student was injured. Nine students were arrested by police in connection with the incident," reports quoting 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 they have been asked to report after April 24 with their guardians, he said.

The scuffle broke out after the India-West Indies cricket match on March 31 in the university, where only last month a rumour over cooking of beef by some Kashmiri students led to protest on the campus following which four Kashmiri students were arrested. They were later released with police saying that prima facie it was found that the meat was not beef.
