Students hurt in RR campus clash

Kathmandu, November 7:

Dozens of students sustained injuries following a clash between supporters of two separate students’ organisations at Ratna Rajya (RR) Campus today.

The clash occurred after a disagreement on the dress code of the campus between students of the CPN-UML-aligned All Nepal National Free Students’ Union (ANNFSU) and the Maoist-aligned All Nepal national Free Students’ Union-Revolutionary (ANNFSU-R).

According to the president of the Free Students’ Union (FSU), RR Campus, Nawaraj Poudel, ANNISU-R supporters ransacked the FSU office in the campus and made away with some documents.

The president of ANNFSU-R, Lekhnath Neupane, meanwhile, accused the FSU secretary of the RR Campus Raj Kumar Rai of mistreating students of his organisation who were in the campus to advertise the Maoist mass meeting scheduled to take place in Kathmandu on Friday.

Those injured in the clash include Kumar Ranamagar and Min Prasad Sanjyal of ANNFSU and Bandhu Bikram Chhetri, Rajendra Baral and Subash Pokharel of ANNFSU-R.

They are undergoing treatment in the Model Hospital.
