The Haryana Police on Saturday arrested three persons who allegedly beat up two Kashmiri youths near Mahendragarh on Friday.
The two youths, Aftab Ahmad (23) and Amjad Ali (22), both MSc Geography students at Central University of Haryana, were allegedly beat up for no reason by group of people in Janti-Pali village near Mahendragarh, when they were returning to the campus after offering prayers at a nearby mosque.
“After offering the Friday prayers, we went to the market. When we started our bike, we noticed around 15 people following us. Initially, we did not take it seriously. They stopped us at the roundabout and started beating us up. My friend managed to escape, but the men continued to beat me. I kept asking them what I did,” said Ahmad.
Mahendragarh SP Kamaldeep Goyal said police have identified six persons after scrutinising CCTV footage. Of them, three have been arrested and others will be arrested soon.
“We are interrogating the arrested. We are trying to find out why the accused attacked the students,” he said.
