Clashes between two groups of students at Aligarh Muslim University on Saturday during the India-Pakistan World T20 cricket match resulted in an injury to a student. The police were called in after guns were fired while the students watched the match on television.

While Prof. M Mohsin Khan, proctor of AMU, said that the student was injured during celebratory firing, the police say there was a fight, but they could not identify the attackers given that there was no written complaint.

The confrontation was allegedly between students celebrating India's win and a few students from Kashmir, according to the Hindustan Times. The condition of the injured student, Kalim Ahmad, is reportedly serious.

Superintendent of police Anshul Gupta said: "The injured student has been referred to Delhi because of his serious condition. The reason behind the confrontation will be clearer when we receive a written complaint."

Earlier, during the match, there was apparently another dispute between a few students which had been tamped down by senior students.

On the same day, a private college in Ghaziabad was served a notice after two female students allegedly chanted anti-India slogans during the match.
