[RxPG] Hyderabad, April 21 - An undergraduate student was injured when a senior student of the college opened fire on the campus of an engineering college here Saturday.

Mukarram Ali Siddiqui, a first-year student of Deccan Engineering College, was injured when second year student, Mohammed Umeedullah Khan opened fire on students.

Doctors said the condition of Siddiqui, who received two bullets in the legs, was stable.

Khan allegedly fired six to seven round from his .32 revolver. The incident is seen as a sequel to the rivalry between two groups of students over a ragging incident.

Khan was arrested and police were trying to find out how he managed to obtain the gun.

According to the college management and students, Khan was notorious for ragging junior students on the campus and had even been suspended from the college in February this year. His suspension was revoked recently.

The incident took place in the afternoon. The college is located on the campus of Darussalam, the headquarters of political party Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen -.

Eyewitnesses said that Khan suddenly appeared brandishing the revolver. He fired five rounds as other students, who were collecting hall tickets for the examinations, watched in disbelief. They said MIM legislator Afasr Khan and others caught the assailant and handed him over to police.

The incident led to panic in the area and the campus was closed.

'He was involved in several incidents of ragging on the campus and used to threaten others with dire consequences,' said a student on condition of anonymity.

The college is one of several educational institutions run by the Darrusalam Education Trust of MIM, which is headed by former Member of Parliament Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi.
