Clashing Protests and Injured Students at EFLU: Two Sides of the Story

Hyderabad: Tensions ran high at the English and Foreign Languages University (EFLU) campus on Monday evening, as protests by rival student groups resulted in three injuries. The incident unfolded amid differing agendas and accusations, highlighting a divided student body.

ABVP Seeks GBM Resolution and Elections: One side, represented by the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), staged a protest demanding a resolution to the ongoing issue surrounding the university’s General Body Meeting (GBM) and the scheduling of student union elections.

Students Collective Protests “Chaos”: The other side, under the banner of the EFLU Students’ Collective, held a human chain demonstration within the campus. Their protest stemmed from allegations of “chaos” allegedly created by the ABVP during the February 9th GBM.

Claims of Violence and Inaction: The situation escalated, with both sides making accusations of physical assault. The ABVP claimed a PWD student supporting them was severely injured by members of the Students’ Federation of India (SFI) and Fraternity Movement (FM) units. The FM countered, alleging their media convener and an executive committee member were beaten by ABVP members during the protest. Additionally, both sides accused the university health center of denying them fair treatment.

Police Involvement and Pending Complaints: The incident prompted intervention from the Osmania University Police Station, with both student groups registering complaints against each other.

Remaining Questions: This event exposes a divided student body at EFLU and raises questions about accountability within the university. Was there truly “chaos” at the GBM? Did excessive force play a role in the reported injuries? How will the university address these concerns and ensure the safety of its students?

This rewritten article aims to present a balanced perspective by highlighting the key points from both sides and raising crucial questions surrounding the incident.
