SFI-AVBP Clash in Himachal Pradesh Univ.

14July-Clash

5 injured, 11 detained

Shimla: At least five students were injured on campus at Himachal Pradesh University when students belonging to Students Federation of India (SFI) and Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) clashed in the evening, today.

District police chief RM Sharma said “a case under section 307, 147 of CrPC had been registered and 11 students had been detained. Police was on the lookout for others who have been named in the FIR, he said.

The police official said that some students belonging to AVBP outfit were standing at Summer Hill Chowk, when those belonging to SFI converged onto the spot and started pelting stones and beating them.

In the process five students have sustained injuries and are being sent for medical examination, said Sharma.

On the other hand Communist Party of India (Marxists) have condemned the violence at HPU saying that goondaism in the institution was being fanned by the university authorities and the state government.

It is astonishing that after the police has admitted to a scuffle having taken place between two organizations, students owing allegiance to SFI have been arrested, whereas the others have been allowed to move scot free and terrorize common students on the campus, said Tikender Panwar, member secretariat CPI(M).

  • what else could be expected out of these comrades who have this kind of nature of disturbing the academic atmosphere in the campus.i have seen many incidents where students belonging to SFI have created tension in universtiy eg. on 30 april ,2009 some students carrying badges of SFI entered the IMS building and threatend the students and teachers to boycot the classes,the misbehaved with one of the professor C.L Chandan.on 16 march,2009 some of SFI workers entered the dsw office and misbehaved with him if this was not enough they slapped him.This is the truth of these comrades
    “jis thaali main khaate hain ussi main ched karte hain”
    this is the real nature of SFi workers “jo apne desh ke nai hue woh kisi aur ke kya honge”

    • Hum aise nai hai, hum jante hai kya galat hai kay sahi. Hum bhi is desh ke utne hi hai jitna ki tu hai aur yeh desh bhi utna hi humara hai jitna ke tera.
