Vijay Dixit, Public Relations Officer of IGNTU, said that on the night of March 10, security personnel had an argument with the students over taking photographs near the water tank near the main gate, which escalated into a scuffle.
Four students were injured in the incident who were sent to Anuppur in an ambulance for treatment. Dixit said that after the incident, the security personnel lodged a complaint against the students at the Amarkantak police station. At the same time, the students have demanded action against the security personnel from the university administration. He said that action will be taken soon in the matter. At the same time, Amarkantak police station in-charge Visakha Urveti refused to comment on the incident.
Meanwhile, Kerala Chief Minister Vijayan said on Sunday that increasing hostility towards individuals on the basis of identity should be stopped. He tweeted, “The attack on Kerala students at IGNTU is appalling and the growing hostility towards people based on their identity in our country needs to stop. The university should take prompt action against the culprits and ensure the safety of all students on campus.”
Taking cognizance of the matter, Kerala’s Lok Sabha member ET Mohammad Basheer has written a letter to the Vice-Chancellor demanding action against the security personnel.
