Thursday September 1, 2016 3:56 PM, IANS

Varanasi: Police have filed a case against students and doctors at the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) after friends of an injured student clashed with doctors, a police officer said on Thursday.

The violence broke out between attendants of a patient and doctors at the BHU on Wednesday night, leaving many injured. The incident occurred after friends of an injured student alleged that doctors didn't attend to him.

They resorted to stone pelting and ransacked official property even as police was called in. It took the officers more than three hours to contain the mob.

As soon as news of the doctors-students clash spread, students staying in hostels too pitched in. Outnumbered, the doctors beat a hasty retreat. Heavy police reinforcements were sent to the spot.

An official told IANS that by Thursday morning the situation was brought under control and a case was registered against students and some doctors.
