After getting information on the possible trouble by anti-social elements on PAU campus, the police on Friday conducted a special checking drive.
The police cracked down on outsiders as cops from four police stations flooded the campus, checking ID cards.
Students and outsiders sitting in cafeteria, student’s home and green belts were checked and a few were rounded up.
Police sources said that action followed a tip-off that the opposite group of PAU Students’ Union planned to enter the campus with outsiders and paste posters across the campus.
The cops informed the parents of those detained and later released them after giving a warning.
Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Satvir Singh Atwal said the drive was conducted to check the outsiders on the university campus, where security had been beefed up.
