8 foreign students get judicial custody for clash at varsity

 Eight foreign students, out of the 11 arrested in connection with a clash at a private university here, were today sent to judicial custody by a court while three Indian students were released on bail.

The eight foreign students, who belong to Afghanistan, Uganda, Congo and Cameroon, were arrested yesterday in connection with the clash, in which nine people were injured.

The clash broke out following an altercation over some issue between students from abroad and India, who stay in the hostels on the campus of the university. The incident took place late Sunday night, in which the students also pelted each other with stones. One of the injured students was admitted to a hospital run by the university.

"Eight foreign students and three Indians, who were arrested yesterday in connection with the clash and booked under different IPC sections, including 307 (attempt to murder), were produced in the court of Judicial Magistrate in Waghodia town today as their one day police remand came to an end," a police officer told PTI.

While three Indian students were given bail, the eight foreign students were sent to the central jail in Vadodara, as they could not furnish bail bonds.
