Kashmir Law College students stage protest, demand punishment to ‘erring students’

Allege rented goons of 3rd semester students vandalized college property, beat students, threaten staff

(Asian News Hub) – Students from Kashmir Law College Friday hit streets to protest alleged ragging of juniors by 3rd semester students, stating that the later brought “goons” who vandalized college property and beat students.

Protesting students alleged that erring 3rd semester students besides harassing their juniors also brought some rented goons who vandalized college furniture, beat students to pulp and threatened the staff.

The students including girls assembled at Press Enclave to lodge their protest against the bullying of junior students at Kashmir Law College Nowshera.

The slogan shouting students carrying pictures of alleged rented goons holding ‘knuckle-punches’ in their hands demanded stringent action against erring students, who they alleged broke all records of ‘rowdiness’.

Zakariya Ashraf, an 8th semester student said some 1st year law students brought the issue of alleged bullying by 3rd semester students a few days back which became the cause of disagreement between the two sides.

He said the 3rd semester students who were exposed after the recent episode of hooliganism at Kashmir Law College are now trying to put blame on 8th semester students for the mess.

“Some 1st semester students came to us and informed us that they are being bullied by their seniors, we assured them that ragging will not be allowed in this college and we took the issue up with erring students, who instead of feeling sorry, started beating us,” Zakariya told reporters.

He also said that the parents of erring students also joined them in beating students while rented goons played their part by vandalizing college property, abusing students and staff and threatening the college head.

He said the entire college administration and other students stand by their side to come to the rescue of some juniors who were being bullied by erring 3rd semester students.

“Had we done anything wrong, college administration, faculty and students would not have supported us. We want the students who uploaded fake video on social media to gain public sympathies and those who were hired by them to create ruckus in the college be brought into book,” he added.
