Police sources said on Saturday that two groups of students clashed in the city’s university college due to some students having installed pictures of Veer Savarkar and Bharat Mata in class a few days ago. The photos were removed the next day by college authorities after complaints from other students. The video clip of the students uploading pictures went viral on social media.
Three students who sustained minor injuries in the clash were taken to hospital. The issue re-emerged on Friday after a group of students quarreled with other students who complained to the school principal about the photos that led to the clash, sources said.
Both student groups submitted complaints to the Mangaluru South Police. Police said an investigation is underway. College director Ansuya Rai said the students involved in the clash would be identified and disciplinary action would be taken after an internal investigation.
