Navjoat Aulakh, 18, of Carteret allegedly said three white men assaulted him and called him an “Islamic terrorist” outside Whitman Hall Thursday night. An alert was issued to students and staff.
But in an email on Friday, Police Chief Paul Cell said an investigation determined Aulakh’s story was “fabricated.”
“Sadly this individual chose to put our community in fear and this type of action will not be tolerated,” Cell said in the email. Aulakh also will be charged with creating a false public alarm, the university said.
