Ramjas row: ABVP sacks 2 members arrested for attack on AISA activists

New Delhi: The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) on Wednesday has sacked two members who were arrested for attacking two AISA supporters on the North Campus of Delhi University.

Media reports say the student wing also asked police to take strict action against the members identified as- Prashant Mishra and Vinayak Sharma.

The AISA activists, Raj Singh and Utkarsh Bhardwaj, had alleged that they were strangulated by Prashant Mishra and his friends, who followed them while they were returning from Arts Faculty around 5.20 PM, police said.

Utkarsh and Raj claimed that they were attacked by seven-eight people near Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College and strangulated with belts.

Police managed to nab two persons — Prashant and Vinayak Sharma — from the spot.

They have been booked under IPC sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 341 (punishment for wrongful restraint) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) and arrested, said a senior police officer.

Police are trying to identify the other students who were involved in the alleged attack on the AISA activists.

Details awaited.
