Tension in Rampur over scuffle with Sikh student

Rampur (UP): The alleged attempts by some students of a higher secondary school here to forcibly remove the turban of a Sikh classmate and a subsequent scuffle mushroomed into a communal tension. .

Police on Thursday said cases were registered against seven persons in connection with the incident on Wednesday evening and two of them were arrested. Tension began after some students of St Anthony Higher Secondary School pulled down their classmate’s turban. Later, they beat him up and resorted to firing in the Sant Bhai Ji Baba gurudwara premises, where he took shelter.

Sikhs took out protests wielding swords on the national highway and disrupted traffic. A state-owned bus was damaged, following which police resorted to baton charge.

The police held a meeting with leaders of the Sikh community to urge them to maintain law and order. --PTI
