The command, however, vowed to continue monitoring the situation following reports of gunshots in the area.
The command disclosed this in a terse statement shared on its official X handle on Monday.
It read, “Reports from our officers at BUK New site indicate that the allegation of Kidnappers in the female Hostel is fake news. Of all the people in the Hostel including the security, only 2 female students claimed to have heard a sound of gunshot. Monitoring is in progress & investigation has commenced.”
