Two days following the Bengaluru Police booked Amnesty International on arraigns of sedition and Kashmiri students for raising 'azaadi' slogans at an event prearranged by the human rights body, three students from Sri Siddhartha Institute of Technology in Tumkur city of Karnataka have been detained for lifting pro-Pakistan slogans.
The college is managed by Karnataka home minister Dr G Parameshwara. On August 14 night, three students, Danish Ahmed, Praveen Kumar Singh and Mohit Singh got into a quarrel during Mohit's birthday celebration. An inconsequential argument snowballed into a serious situation wherein Praveen and Danish burnt books and clothes in the hostel.
The security guard of the hostel complained to the police about the occurrence. During the quarrel, Praveen Kumar supposedly raised slogans conveying "Pakistan Zindabad". The students who were detained, during their questioning, they deprived of raising pro-Pakistan slogans and conveyed that they actually had screamed "Pakistan Murdabad".
Superintendent of police Tumkur, Karthik Reddy has also further conveyed that, all three students where in an intoxicated circumstance and reacted this way below the influence of alcohol. He also has further conveyed that, it was Praveen Kumar, whose father works in the Indian army, who supposedly raised the pro-Pakistan slogan. Karnataka home minister, Dr G Parameshwara, has conveyed that he has sought an enquiry into the issue and if anyone is established guilty, severe action will be taken.
