Video shows student’s Hyderabad dormitory attack – Flying Journals

Eight students charged with attempted murder have been detained.


A video of a law student who was beaten in his dormitory near Hyderabad and allegedly forced to shout religious slogans by a group of students has gone viral.

The video showed Himank Bansal, a first-year student at the ICFAI Foundation for Higher Education (IFHE) in Hyderabad, being slapped, kicked and twisted. He can also be heard chanting “Jai Mata Di” and “Allahu Akbar” as the accused continued to beat him.

“We want to fix his ideology. We’ll knock him into a coma and he’ll remember a whole new world,” said one defendant. One of them grabbed his wallet and said to the other, “Take all the money you want.”

Five of the 12 students charged with attempted murder have been detained. The remaining seven are at large. They were all suspended from business school.

The incident occurred on November 1, when Simank made comments against the Prophet on social media. Police said a case was opened after he made a report to police saying he had been physically and sexually assaulted.

In his complaint, he also claimed that the students threatened to beat him to death if he did not take off his pants. Himank also tweeted about the incident and tagged Telangana Minister KT Rama Rao and Cyderabad police chief.

Cyberabad police chief Stephen Raveendra said there was “no north and south” in the incident, in which the student was forced to chant slogans from both religions.

In a statement, the business school said it had “zero tolerance for this type of bad behaviour”. “They acted quickly and made the decision to suspend” all 12 students involved in the incident, the agency said.

The BJP demanded a proper investigation into the matter and slammed the Telangana government led by K Chandrashekhar Rao for not taking immediate action. “This has nothing to do with religion here. This is pseudo-secularism and such provocative incidents go unnoticed,” BJP leader Ratchana Reddy told news agency ANI.
