After two Kashmiri students were allegedly assaulted by Shiv Sena’s youth activists in Maharashtra’s Yavatmal, the party has sacked the activists involved in the brawl, a video of which has been shared widely on social media.
There were eight accused involved in the incident, who belonged to the Yuva Sena, the youth wing of Shiv Sena and action has been taken against them. Police has registered FIR at local station and arrested them as well.
The students have claimed that they have been living under the threat after the terror attack took place. One student told NDTV that, “We have been living here for the last one-and-a-half years. But they are now forcing us to vacate our rented accommodations in four days. It's difficult to study in such circumstances.”
As of last evening, the Party has sacked those involved in the act. J&K is a part of India and no Indian, or for that matter, nobody should face the brunt of anger that is towards terrorism. We understand the angst but it must be against terror, not innocent people.— Aaditya Thackeray (@AUThackeray) February 22, 2019
