The photographs of the celebration went viral on the social media and that might have irked the staff as well as some of the local residents into attacking them on Thursday, they said. South ACP Abdul Razack KP said the police had reached the campus on Monday and dispersed the students as the celebrations had spread on to the road and the outsiders started complaining. The college management denied the allegation and said the clashes took place between the students and the local residents, that too outside the campus.
