Asked about shots being allegedly fired, Sajwan said the police had received information about the firing. Sajwan added that the FIR was being written on the police's behalf since the college administration had not lodged a complaint. Lalkurti police station in-charge Naresh Kumar said the three injured students were in police custody. One of the injured students said some outsiders had allegedly entered the campus.

"They started fighting without any reason. One of them had a pistol. The police were informed about the incident. As soon as they arrived, the outsiders fled," he added.
