One of the most recognized universities of Eastern India, KIIT University has turned into a battleground from yesterday.
The violent clash broke out between the students of B.tech and law students after a second year engineering student passed lewd comments to a female law student.
On the evening of 23 November, a second-year B-Tech Mechanical Engineering student allegedly harassed and teased a final year female law student inside KIIT campus. Following the incident, the law student and her batchmates protested at the BTech hostel and demanded an apology. The blamed apologized by the end for the day.
@ZeeNews See the brutality by which law students of KIIT UNIVERSITY are treated by engineering students. The students in the lift are law students who have been brutally beaten up.
Extremely inhuman and insane behavior. pic.twitter.com/YRBZzn6kDn

However, the next day, hundreds of engineering students reportedly entered the Law School with brew bottles, sticks, bats, stones and even knives with an intention to damage the school and cause harm to the unaware law students and seeing the action of other students defending the culprit, the irony just died a thousand deaths.
And the spot CCTV footages are now going viral on social media platforms and even few of the national media has also published the report after SRPF deployment and the high voltage action inside the campus. However, there’s always another side of the story and people on social media reacted with their versions and asked CM Naveen Patnaik and education department for intervention to take immediate action against the culprits and the college authority.
The situation in KIIT University is highly disturbing. A lot of my friends and their siblings are a part of the college and it’s highly scary that those standing up for justice are punished. Think about all the parents who have sent their children to study there

KIIT Univeristy has become an abode for hooligans where the engineering students can come and treat Law students like animals. Well this isn’t clearly the first time where atrocities against Law students have been carried out. #justiceforksol pic.twitter.com/Xlp1IIcxrV

First, the issue was escalated to higher degree because police action was delayed. Second, none of the KIIT authorities are available to answer about the situation. @achyuta_samanta @otvnews @NewIndianXpress @timesofindia @Dharitri_News @etvodia #Odisha https://t.co/ZRLszXTeTm
