Chennai, PTI Report: Two groups of students of a private college here clashed when one student objected to another smoking in front of his hostel room but police stepped in and let them off after a warning.
A section of students alleged that another group beat them up over some altercation and that they sustained injuries.
However, police said that there was some altercation after one student objected to another smoking in front of his hostel room and asked him to go elsewhere.
Since the student did not pay heed to the request, the other group roughed him up and some of his friends, police said.
College authorities, however, termed it as a minor scuffle which was sorted later.
“It was a small fight and the issue has been sorted out”, a college spokesperson said.
A senior police officer said that the parents of the students involved in the scuffle were summoned and their wards let off after a warning.
“We have not booked any case. We have given them a stern warning in front of parents,” the official said. PTI VIJ SA TVS RCB DK
