HYDERABAD: Heated arguments over a Facebook post led to bloodshed outside the gates of Deccan College of Engineering and Technology at Darussalam in Nampally on Tuesday. A first year student suffered minor injuries when his batchmate took out a knife in the middle of an altercation between them in the morning. Mazhar Rabbani, a first year CEC student, attacked Junaid Khan, a first year EC student, outside a pan shop near the college gate.

According to Habeeb Nagar police, the altercation took place at around 9.30 am before the college hours began. Rabbani and Junaid entered into an argument over a post on the college’s Facebook page. Both the 19-year-old students decided to take the discussion out on to the streets.

“Rabbani attacked Junaid outside the college gate following the quarrel. A case of attempt to murder has been registered and Rabbani has been arrested,” said R Sanjay Kumar, Inspector.

The confessions page on Facebook which lets a user post anonymously about any topic often leads to disagreements in the college. Since the one who has posted the remark is anonymous, it often turns out to be a war of words between users, and sometimes against the group itself. In the latest case, it is learnt that Rabbani was the admin of the page.
