A clash between two student organisations of Nattakom Government Art and Science College created trouble at District Hospital and the busy K K Road here on Monday when it spilled over to Kottayam town.
SFI and Campus Front activists clashed in the compound of the District Hospital here as a sequel to the violence that erupted on the campus on Monday. The violence and fight between activists of the two organisations that lasted nearly an hour in the vicinity of hundreds of patients, passers-by and motorists created a panic situation in the heart of the town. The police resorted to lathi charge to disperse the violent students, who got the assistance of DYFI and NDF activists. Around 10 students of various organisations were injured in the incident.
It all started when the flagpoles erected by the Campus Front, the KSU and the ABVP were found damaged on Monday. The Campus Front declared a strike on the campus in protest against the incident. A demonstration taken out by the organisation led to a scuffle between the SFI activists, and some students got injured. Later, as the injured were taken to the District Hospital, the fight spilled over to the streets and the hospital premises.
