The video comes days after there were reports that an 18-year-old student of Dyal Singh College was allegedly attacked for belonging to the Scheduled Caste. The victim was reportedly attacked by an ice pick and glass bottles.
The victim had reportedly got 14 stitches on the face and had claimed that those who attacked him were Jats. He had also claimed that the other students had been harassing him for the past few months and had been levelling casteist slurs.
In February, a 23-year-old sportswoman was also allegedly beaten up by a group of men when she was on her way to her hostel. She claimed that she was surrounded by a group of six men who looked to be college students. The men hit her until she shouted that she was a girl. Realising that hitting a woman could get them in serious trouble, the attackers fled the scene.
