SRINAGAR: Three B Tech students from Kashmir were suspended by an engineering college in Agra on Monday for allegedly sharing chats on their social media account after India lost to Pakistan in the World T-20 match on Sunday night.
Quoting police newspaper HindustanTimes reported that they posted stories praising Pakistan and disowned India as their country.
According to report, on Tuesday, BJP Yuva Morcha (BJYM) leaders reached the college campus and raised slogans, seeking action against these students.
They approached the Jagdishpura police station in this regard and a case was being registered against the students on the basis of the ‘tehrir’ (informal complaint) submitted by BJYM leaders, the newspaper quoted Vikas Kumar, SP (city) as having said.
“It was alleged that these students had shared some anti-national posts on a messaging app,” he added.
“The college administration came to know about the three B.Tech students’ anti-national chats after the India-Pakistan in T-20 match on Sunday night. They were residing in the hostel on Bichpuri campus in Agra,” HindustanTimes quoted Ashish Shukla, chief proctor, RBS Engineering Technical Campus as having said.
He said these students got admission to engineering courses on the basis of a central government scheme. “The trio was suspended from the hostel and college on Monday. But later, they apologized for their act,” added Shukla.
BJYM Braj prant leader Gaurav Rajawat filed the ‘tehrir’, alleging that the three Kashmiri students raised anti-India slogans and shared chats on social media that could disturb peace and tranquility.
