SFI flays attack on students

Addressing the news conference on Tuesday, SFI District Secretary Jeevanraj Kuthar said that though the victims have identified the culprits in person, the accused are roaming out in open fearlessly, which certainly raises questions at the essence of democracy, justice and the police.

“There are many cases booked against the accused already. If these accused are not put behind the bars despite strong evidences, it clearly points that these accused have political backing,” he said and alleged that BJP government is protecting and nurturing such people.

“Silence maintained by Ministers Krishna J Palemar and Dr V S Acharya establish that these anti-social elements are backed by BJP Government,” he said.

SFI District President Prashanth Achar said that the air of suspicion between students hailing from different religions are seen in college campus too as two students from different religion think twice before speaking to each other.

SFI will stage a massive convention against the incident within one week and warn the government and the police department that if such incidents are not stopped, they will stage intense protest within the democratic framework in future and if any untoward incidents occur during this protest, they will hold the government and police responsible for the same.

Komu Souhardha Vedike condemns

On the other hand, Komu Souhardha Vedike too has condemned the heinous attack on students by a Hindu fundamental group.

Vedike State Secretary K L Ashok said that the attack on students is like attack on democracy and an attack on future of this nation.

Vedike has demanded arrest of the culprits at the earliest and suspension of Bajpe Sub Inspector Raghav Padil.

Professor Pattabhiram Somayaji said that the Vedike held a meeting with IGP Gopal B Hosur and Hosur had assured to see to it that such incidents do not occur again.
Victims Rasheed Rizwan, Sadiq and Shahid were present at the news conference and narrated the scenes of how they were dragged out of the bus and thrashed.

The group of 6 (2 girls) were heading towards St Aloysius College, where the camp for State-level sports tourney to be held in Hassan was put up.
