Nine students of a private engineering institute in Ghaziabad — including three from Jammu and Kashmir — were expelled for being involved in a brawl. Police indicated that the students were expelled to avoid conflict between Kashmiri students and the others.

Of the nine, six students were asked to leave the hostel with immediate effect on Friday. The three Kashmiri students were given time to leave till Sunday, police said. The management of the institute, HR Institute of Technology, however, remained tight-lipped about exactly why it had expelled the Kashmiri students.

Jagdish Sharma, SP (rural), Ghaziabad, said no complaint had been registered, but the management had submitted a written communication stating that the institute would handle the matter internally.

Earlier this week, another  Kashmiri student from the same institute was beaten up allegedly by his seniors. Police said, in that case too, no official complaint was filed.

    The sickular parties raj over long years have turned our very way of thinking upside down. Look at the caption of this story: Rather than saying 9 students have been expelled from the Ghaziabad Insute, we underline only the 3 Kashmiri students among those expelled. For God's sake, start including Muslims into the general Indian poce, not as some kind of a separate, alien eny. For their vote bank politics, the sickularists wanted the Muslims to stand apart, but newspapers do not have to follow their line. Do they?.
