the 'beef festival' boycotted the classes today, a police official said.

A 'beef festival' organised by a group of students turned violent in the university campus yesterday as another group objected to holding such a festival.

While the organisers of the 'beef festival' described it as a reclamation of their cultural rights, the rival group said such an event was against Indian culture resulting in a clash.

Two vehicles including one belonging to media were damaged in the incident. The police lobbed teargas shells and resorted to baton charge to bring the situation under control.
