New Delhi, July 5, News24 Bureau: A shocking video released by ANI today shows that as the National Anthem was being played during a college function in Srinagar, many students prefer to remain seated throughout; showing disrespect to the National Flag. 

In the shocking video from Srinagar, some college students are seen seated while the national anthem was being played.

Majority of students stood up as the National Anthem played but a handful of students chose to show disrespect to the national flag as well as the song.

The same type of incident took place in November last year, when two students of Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University in Rajouri were booked for disrespecting the national anthem. In another identical incident, a Students' Federation of India leader was suspended from his college in Kochi for allegedly insulting the national anthem in March this year.
