Nigerian Students Depart GD Goenka University Due To Indian violence

GD Goenka University

After being attacked by Indian classmates at the GD Goenka University in Gurgaon, Nigerian students there have left the campus.

Over a debate about substituting a player, chaos broke out during a football game. According to police officials, six people have been officially confirmed harmed as a result of the attacks that hit roughly 60 Nigerian students.

Students from Nigeria who managed to flee the attacks have moved to Delhi.

About a month prior to this altercation, Indian students had demonstrated against foreign students leading Islamic prayers on the soccer pitch. The majority-Hindu Indian students had complained to the administration of the school, demanding that Muslim pupils confine their prayers to specific locations.

The administration of the school denied any on-campus violence and claimed that a peaceful conclusion had been reached. However, while an internal inquiry was underway, eight students were placed on academic probation.

Students from Nigeria and India accuse one another of harassment and report it to the authorities.

A Nigerian student by the name of Rabiu Mohammed filed a police report (FIR) with the help of the Nigerian Embassy, accusing Indian students of attacking him and other overseas students.

In response to the complaints, the ASI, Sohna Police Station, has registered a case against both groups of students under sections 323 (causing injury) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC.
