Mahendragarh: A group of local youth held a demonstration and burnt an effigy of Mehbooba Mufti at Ambedkar Chowk on Wednesday, demanding cross-case against the two Kashmiri assaulted students.
Demonstrators accused the police of taking one-sided action into the case reportedly under political pressure and demanded registration of a cross-case against the two Kashmiri assaulted students of the Central University of Haryana.
Rahul Yadav-one of the demonstrator said, “The Kashmiri students first manhandled some local youths in connection with some minor issue that day, but the police did not take any action against them while the local youths were arrested that night.”
Rahul claimed that Kashmiri students were equally responsible for the conflict and hence, a cross-case should be registered against Kashmiri students, demonstrators threatened to launch an agitation if the police did not accept their demand.
Moreover, police in Haryana’s Mahendragarh have arrested three local boys on February in connection with the attack on two Kashmiri students – Aftab and Amjad who were returning back after praying Friday prayers, and the action was taken after Mehbooba Mufti urged Haryana’s chief minister-Manohar Khattar on Twitter.
