Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti saying she was “shocked and disturbed” by the incident.

Haryana police said the six accused had, the same day, assaulted five Muslim men as they walked out of a mosque after their Friday prayers.

According to Mahendragarh Superintendent of Police Kamaldeep, the Muslim men were the “original targets” of the attackers and the two students had been assaulted “mistakenly”.
On Saturday, police said they had registered two separate FIRs against the six accused: one for allegedly assaulting Aftab Ahmad and Amjad Ali, the two students from J&K who studied at



Central University of Haryana in Mahendragarh, and the other for allegedly assaulting five Muslim labourers — Sadik, Sharik, Intazar, Rehman and Aslam — from Muzaffarnagar and Shamli districts in UP. Two of the accused were arrested on Saturday.
“When we came out of the mosque, a group of 10 men came on five bikes and asked us to remove our skull caps. They also asked two others, who had their skull caps in their pockets, to take them out. When we refused to do as they said, they threatened us. They later followed us and assaulted us near the factory where we work,” Sadik told The Sunday Express. Sadik and the others have been working in Mahendergarh for five months.
