Muslim Female Students Assaulted by Indian University Police
RELIGIONS NEWS AGENCY (REDNA) – A group of Muslim female students at Desh Bhagat University in Punjab faced a distressing incident on a Thursday afternoon as they engaged in a protest that had been ongoing for approximately three weeks.
As “5 Pillars” reported the protest stemmed from allegations that the university had unlawfully transferred their admissions to another nursing college that lacked recognition from the Indian Nursing Council (INC).
The majority of protestors were students from Jammu and Kashmir.
The Kashmiriyat, the university’s admission department denied the students’ claims of assault and instead asserted that the students had obstructed the university gate.
The situation prompted the university’s closure, pending further instructions, and was handed over to the police and administrative authorities for resolution.
