Sudanese students ram doc's car, 'assault and rob' him in Mysuru

Three Sudanese students, including two girls, were detained and let off after a doctor complained they assaulted him on Saturday night. The students lodged a counter complaint, alleging abuse by the doctor.

The police identified the students as Jeena, Donna and Godan, while the identity of another student, who fled the spot, is yet to be known. While Jeena and Godan are studying law at JSS College, Donna is a BCom student at JSS Women’s College.

A police source narrated the sequence of events.

A Ford Ikon car with Godan at the wheel reportedly dashed the car driven by Dr Karthik Udupa near JSS Hospital on MG Road. Udupa, a doctor at Vatsalya Nursing Home (formerly Seetaranga Hospital) and his wife, were returning home from the Mall of Mysore around 8.40 pm when the incident occurred. The doctor shoved the students’ car in retaliation and stopped them yards from the KR station. When he confronted them, one of them reportedly punched him in the left eye. A crowd gathered soon and took the students to task. One of them fled the spot.

Udupa’s version of the incident differed slightly. He said that besides dashing and overtaking his car, the students also stopped him and snatched his gold chain.

The police have booked the students for rash driving and robbery. Following the students’ complaint, the police booked the doctor for abusing the girls and attempting to assault them.

Based on the doctor’s complaint, the police subjected the students to a medical test to ascertain if they were drunk when the incident occurred. The report is awaited. Both the parties have been summoned to the police station for questioning on Monday.
