Chandigarh: A group of youths from Jammu and Kashmir, studying in a private college in a Haryana town, have alleged they were thrashed by some of their peers, an incident termed as minor by the authorities who promised all security to them.

Studying in an engineering college in Panchkula, they said they were attacked last Sunday by some students from the same college who also called them "anti-nationals".

They told reporters that some of them were injured in the attack by their college-mates who, they alleged, had been harassing them for quite some time over their origin.

When contacted, DCP (Rural) Ambala Naznin Bhasin said the police were looking into the matter.

"We are verifying details (of the incident of attack)," she said.

The college management termed the incident as a minor one and said the matter had been amicably resolved.

"Two groups of students having grudge against each other were involved in the incident. With the intervention of the college management, the matter was amicably resolved," college chairman S K Gupta told PTI.

No police complaint was lodged, said the Chairman who claimed his college was affiliated to Kurukshetra University.

A student, hailing from Jammu and Kashmir, said some of them had left their hostel fearing more such attacks.

The college chairman said some 20 students had decided to leave their hostel rooms but half of them later changed their minds.

"We have assured all students from J&K that we are committed to give them a safe and homely environment and they should not worry," he said.

"There are about 50 students from Kashmir Valley and 30 from Jammu province who are pursuing engineering and MBA courses in the college," the chairman said.
