3 Bengaluru College Students Chant “Pakistan Zindabad”, Suspended
Three New Horizon College of Engineering students were detained by Bengaluru Police after a video of them yelling “Pakistan Zindabad” went popular on social media. The college officials who had suspended the students eventually granted them bail when police told NDTV that “their behaviour wasn’t intentional.”
Some students at New Horizon College of Engineering were heard chanting the names of their favourite Indian Premier League (IPL) teams and nations as they got ready to host an inter-college festival on November 25 and 26.
Aryan, Dinakar, and Riya, three students who are all between the ages of 17 and 18, were caught on camera shouting “Pakistan Zindabad” as another student took video of the incident.
Police reported, “For amusement, the students chanted slogans. They were granted station bail release and instructed to assist the inquiry “. At the Marathahalli Police Station, a case was opened against the students for provoking a riot and spreading panic among the populace. The college administration called the students’ parents to inform them that their children had been suspended.
Later, the Deputy Commissioner of Police for Whitefield stated: “The video was taken by a friend of theirs. They were put on administrative leave by the college, and they complained to us. They were initially detained and placed in sections that allowed for bail. Later, they were freed on station bail. They didn’t mean to do that.”
