Nearly Twelve students were injured in a private engineering college in Chandigarh, Punjab following a clash between the Kashmiri students and the local students over supporting for Pakistan during the second ODI between Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

The Punjab Police said that the clash broke out when the Kashmiri students were shouting slogans supporting Pakistan which was objected by the locals. At least 12 students were injured among both the sides at the hostel of Swami Parmanand College of Engineering and Technology located near Lalru, 35 km from Chandigarh.

The 12 students rushed to nearby private hospitals due to treat the injuries sustained in the clash. Some college property was also damaged in the incident. The college administration reported to the police when situation went out of control. It was also included that the college had over 200 students from Kashmir staying in the hostel and that led to a tension in the college campus.

Police Officer Santokh Singh said that the situation had been brought under control and a case was registered following the clash. Some local students and BJP party members even blocked a highway near the college, demanding the arrest of the Kashmiri students. College principal PD Sharma said that the institution had been closed till September 8. Pakistan eventually lost the second ODI at Hambantotta by 77 runs.
