Three MBBS students (2016-17 batch) got badly injured in a brawl that took place on the campus of Punjab Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) during the daytime on Tuesday.

The parents of the students alleged that some outsiders entered the campus and thrashed their children with iron rods leaving their hands, arms and legs fractured. Though the parents took their children to the Civil Hospital and got their Medico-Legal Reports made, no FIR has been lodged yet.

The video of the incident went viral today. The fight went on for quite sometime and even clothes of students got torn. The students, who got injured were hostellers and have gone back to their respective places. The parents said, “We cannot send our children back to an unsafe atmosphere till the offenders are identified and taken to task.”

The college authorities have so far not taken any action against the offenders. Principal Dr Kulbir Kaur is learnt to be unwell for the last two days.

Amit Singh, Director, PIMS, said, “We have checked all CCTV footages of the incident. We have not been able to identify all the offenders yet as none of these footages were clear. One or two students involved in the incident could be outsiders, but we are not sure. Action will definitely be taken against the attackers once the inquiry is completed.”

SHO of Police Division Number 7 said the incident wasn’t reported and no case has been registered so far.
