Indian-origin student arrested for joining in anti-Israel protests in NJ

New Jersey: An Indian-origin female student studying at the prestigious Princeton University is among two students who have been arrested and barred from the campus for staging pro-Palestine protests on the campus.

The two students, Achinthya Sivalingam GS and Hassan Sayed GS were arrested within six minutes of the first tents being set up. “The two graduate students have been immediately barred from campus, pending a disciplinary process,” University spokesperson Jennifer Morrill said.

Achinthya Sivalingan, born in Coimbatore and raised in Columbus, is now barred from the campus and faces disciplinary action.

After warnings from University officials, two Princeton students were arrested, and the remaining protesters packed away their camping gear and continued the demonstration as a sit-in.
