Nearly 70 Kashmiri students of a Meerut university were suspended on Tuesday, reportedly for cheering Pakistan during a cricket match. A fight reportedly erupted between students of the privately run Swami Vivekanand Subharti University after Pakistan defeated India in the Asia Cup match on Sunday.

The university said some Kashmiri students celebrated Pakistan's victory and raised slogans in the community hall of the hostel, which led to a clash with other students and escalated into stone-throwing.

The university suspended all 67 Kashmiri students of one hostel block and asked them to leave, but no action was taken against the other group. Around 200 Kashmiri students are taking engineering and law courses in the university. (In pics: Pakistan, hot and happening!)
