According to the student, the ABVP students took away his mic and started slapping him.

Accusing Suman of giving a political statement in a college seminar, Ray justified that it is but natural that such a statement would incite violence.

All programmes are not meant for politics.
Later the student filed a complaint at the Muffasil Police station where he demanded that an FIR be registered against the members of the ABVP for beating him in public and making casteist remarks and said that he was just expressing his views and his honour has been hit by public beating.
