Kumar said that during investigation, some college authorities said that the students had been directed to leave their hostel rooms. Security staff had gone to the hostel on Wednesday to get them to vacate their rooms, which led to an argument that escalated.

“Some college sources have also said that the two were trying to leave the hostel in violation of rules, and security staff tried to stop them, which led to the clash. We are investigating the matter,” Kumar said.
