New Delhi: Two former students of Jamia Millia Islamia University were on Wednesday arrested for allegedly beating to death a young fine-arts student outside the campus in south Delhi, police said.

Sahil and Aijas were apprehended for allegedly beating to death 18-year-old Shahrukh Shaheer near Ansari Health Club outside Jamia campus yesterday, a senior police official said.

Two others, who were allegedly involved in the incident, are absconding. Efforts are on to nab them, the official said.

Shahrukh was called outside by the duo, who were expelled from the university earlier this month, and two others and was then beaten up mercilessly with hockey sticks and iron rods, the official said.

He was badly injured and taken to Holy Family Hospital where doctors declared him brought dead. Doctors said he died due to internal haemorrhage and damage to vital organs.

Police said they were investigating all angles, including any love affair which might have triggered the incident.

Shahrukh's father is a yoga teacher in the university.

The university has been closed today and will reopen on Friday.
