Two university students, residents of Jammu and Kashmir, were  reportedly  beaten up by some people in Haryana's Mahendragarh, following which three accused have been arrested, police said on Saturday.  

Aftab Ahmad and Amjad, students of Central University of Haryana claimed that they were thrashed by a group of unidentified people  on Friday "for no reason".

The police, however, claimed that a verbal duel took place between the complainants and two locals  after their motorcycles were involved in a minor accident.

The locals then called more people who then reportedly beat them up, the police said,

But Ahmad said, "Yesterday (Friday) we went to a market in Mahendragarh. After offering prayers, when we started our bike, 15 to 20 people came and started beating us for no reason."

A police officer said, "We have identified six people and three of them have been arrested."

"Shocked and disturbed to hear reports of Kashmiri students being assaulted in Mahendragarh, Haryana. I urge the authorities to investigate and take strict action,"Mehbooba tweeted tagging the Haryana chief minister.
