Jaihind and Sonu were produced in a local court that remanded them in judicial custody.

Rohtak PGIMS Chief Security Officer Ishwar Sharma was arrested in connection with the same case yesterday and made to join the investigation by the police.

A case of rioting, assaulting a government official, preventing him from discharging his duty, damaging property and criminal intimidation was registered against Jaihind and Sharma last evening.

Rohtak Superintendent of Police Udai Singh Meena said the Department of Medical Education and Research (DMER) had assigned the task of document verification and awarding social-criteria marks for the selection of staff nurses to Pt Bhagwat Dayal Sharma University of Health Sciences (UHS), Rohtak.

“As per a preliminary investigation, a committee headed by UHS Deputy Registrar Amit Sindhu was engaged in the said task, which was to be conducted from December 12 to 16. On Wednesday, a mob led by Jaihind staged an agitation in front of the gate of college of pharmacy, where the process was being conducted. Sharma and Jaihind forcibly entered the college with 80-100 persons, assaulted Sindhu and threatened him with dire consequences,” said Meena.

On the basis of a complaint lodged by Sindhu, the police have registered an FIR under Sections 148, 149, 186, 323, 332, 353, 427 and 506 of the IPC.

In the complaint, Sindhu said some youths met him on December 12 and 13 and argued with him regarding the process. “On December 14, a group of youths led by Jaihind staged a protest in front of the college of pharmacy where the process was in progress. Instead of stopping the mob from entering the premises, the Chief Security Officer escorted and helped them. They attacked me and threatened me with dire consequences. I hid in a washroom to save myself,” said Sindhu.

On the other hand, Jaihind said the state government’s guidelines as regards giving preference to state’s youth in government jobs were being violated and outsiders were being given preference over them. “I went there to oppose the injustice being done with the unemployed youth of Haryana. However, they misbehaved with me,” said Jaihind.
