Police launched a probe into the alleged brawl outside Amity University in Noida after a video from the incident went viral on social media
A video of a brawl outside the Amity University campus in Noida, Sector 126, went viral on social media on Saturday, prompting police officials to launch a probe into the matter, reported Hindustan Times.
In the video, a group of men can be seen slapping, punching and kicking each other. One man can be seen picking up a utensil from a nearby shop to attack another man.
According to sources, the brawl which initiated between two student groups, escalated within two hours. However, the reason behind the brawl is yet to be ascertained.
Clashes in and around Amity University Noida are not new. Around 10 days ago, another video from outside the institution went viral, where a student of the University, was assaulted by alleged carjackers wielding sticks, resulting in significant injuries. Two suspects connected to the attack had reportedly been arrested.
SCUFFLE AT JNU
Meanwhile, a scuffle broke out late Friday night between RSS-affiliated ABVP and Left-backed groups at the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus during a meeting on holding students’ union polls, with both sides claiming some of their members were injured.
While the warring groups blamed the other side for the ruckus, there was no immediate reaction from the JNU administration.
The student groups clashed during the University General Body Meeting (UGBM) at the Sabarmati Dhaba on the campus to elect members of the Election Commission for the 2024 JNUSU polls.
Left-affiliated Democratic Students’ Federation (DSF) alleged Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members obstructed the UGBM by encroaching upon the dias and heckling council members and speakers.
In videos shared by both the groups on social media, ABVP and JNU students’ union members can be seen arguing, amid shouting and sloganeering as university security personnel try to control the situation.
