Fresh unrest rocked Ghani Khan Choudhury Institute of Engineering & Technology (GKCIET) campus at Narayanpur as two groups of students had a fierce clash between themselves today. The clash continued even in presence of police. Situation was brought under control when police officials took a stern step in the evening.
It has been learnt from police sources that the junior students of GKCIET, who have been organizing movements for the last 48 days demanding affiliation of their courses and admission into B Tech courses,  clashed with senior students.
An altercation between two groups of students soon turned violent. A girl student was allegedly molested too.
Mohammed Hasanuzzaman, a representative of the junior students alleged that the senior students entered the college today with an eye to forcing them to withdraw the movement.
“Senior students threatened us with dire consequences if the movement is not withdrawn. They further warned us of spoiling our future with the help of the authorities. As we protested, they turned hostile and started beating us from pillar to post,” he said.
Sajid Ahmed, a senior student, however, rubbished the allegation and blamed the junior students for the unrest.
“We went to GKCIET for our registration. But the junior students prevented us from filling the forms and pursuing the registration process. They even turned violent and assaulted us physically,” Ahmed said.
GKCIET officials, however, refused to make any comment.
Manabendra Saha, inspector-in-charge of Malda police station said, “Police prompty rushed to the spot to bring situation under control.  A probe has been initiated into the matter.” (EOIPC)
