ALIGARH: Three youths were wounded by gunshots in a fight between two rival groups allegedly belonging to two separate hostels of the Aligarh Muslim University here, officials said on Tuesday. The incident took place Monday night and the injured, Sadiq, Firoz Alam, and Abdullah, are undergoing treatment at the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, they said. Police claimed the three were AMU students. Varsity publicity in-charge Prof Asim Siddiqui, however, said they were outsiders. Siddiqui said a clash had taken place Monday night between two student groups at V M Hall. A short while later, a group of armed youths barged into Sir Syed Hall (North) where a gunfight ensued and three youths were shot and wounded. The university has not issued any explanation yet on how these "outsiders" entered the hostels so late at night. Acting Circle Officer, Civil Lines, Sanjay Jaiswal said police are in the process of filing an FIR in the gunfight, which was connected to an old rivalry between two student groups. PTI
