[RxPG] Hyderabad, April 21 - An undergraduate student was injured when another student opened fire in what appears to be rivalry between two groups on the campus of an engineering college here Saturday.

Mukarram Ali Siddiqui was injured when another student, Mohammed Umeedullah Khan, opened fire as others watched in horror. Doctors said the condition of Siddiqui, who received two bullets in the legs, was stable.

According to police, Khan, a second year student of bachelor of engineering, allegedly fired six to seven round from his .32 revolver on Siddiqui, a third year student. The college management, however, said both were students of second year.

Khan, who was overpowered by other students, was handed over to police. Police have registered a case and seized the gun.

Taking serious note of the incident, the college management announced Saturday night that it was expelling both the students from the college.

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

Deputy Commissioner of Police - Madhusudan Reddy said that Khan took out a revolver and fired at his rival during a clash between two groups of students. 'We are trying to find out how he managed to obtain the weapon,' he said.

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 -.

According to eye witnesses a fight ensued between two groups when Khan reached the college Saturday afternoon to collect his hall ticket for an examination. Siddiqui and others reportedly roughed him up after an argument. Khan returned home and an hour later re-appeared on the college brandishing a revolver.

Siddiqui and his friends initially thought he was only trying to threaten them. Khan opened two rounds in the air and then shot Siddiqui, who received bullet injuries on the legs. Some people present there overpowered Khan while other students ran in panic.

According to college principal Mohammed Abdul Aleem Siddiqui the rivals groups of Khan and Mukarram Siddiqui were earlier involved in a clash on Feb 6 and both were suspended. The police had also arrested them. The suspension was recently revoked.

The college management stated that both were students of BE second year but they were studying in different streams. Earlier reports had said Mukarram was Khan's junior.

The college principal clarified that the incident stemmed from personal rivalry and was not linked to any ragging incident.

'Khan was involved in several incidents of ragging on the campus and used to threaten others,' 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.
