A student sustained minor injuries as the bullet grazed his head, and he was taken to the trauma centre at All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

Sources said one group of students hails from Western Uttar Pradesh and the second group is from Haryana’s Mewat district.

“We found that the first group was upset after one of their woman friends, who also hails from UP, started talking to the students from Mewat. They fought over this petty issue as they did not want her interacting with the other group,” said an officer.
