I am sure you must be aware of the recent horrific incident that we KIIT Law School students have gone through. Violent clashes broke out between the Law School and Engineering department of Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT), Bhubaneshwar on 24 November after simmering tensions over lewd comments passed to a female student the previous day.
The facts are as follows:
A 2nd-year electrical guy passed a lewd comment on a 5th-year law student who happens to be a girl. So some of the law people went to the hostel and asked him to apologise. He did so after much reluctance. But the engineering guys returned, around 300 of them, the next day with beer bottles, knives and stones and started attacking the law school property and injured around 20 people, all of them left bloodied. So an FIR was lodged against all of them and they’ve been expelled. Most of our law school property has been damaged and KIIT University has promised to compensate all the losses that the students have incurred.
Moreover, students (including the girls) were asked to vacate the college premises at 3 in the night.
So here is the entire thing that unfolded and also, the engineering guys are threatening us of dire consequences. – Input from A student, KIIT Law School
