An Iranian student studying at Jawaharlal Nehru University alleged he was beaten up by around 10 students, including an ABVP leader, at Damodar Hostel Monday night in connection with the India-Pakistan cricket match.

However, both parties later resolved the issue in presence of the hostel’s senior warden.

A security guard had also complained that he was threatened and his mobile phone was snatched from him.

JNU rector Chintamani Mahapatra said that all parties have signed a letter stating that they have resolved the matter “amicably” and that it was an “issue between two students” which was “blown out of proportion” and given “unnecessary political colour”.
