A group of Hindutva activists, faces covered by masks, beat up two Muslim students inside the campus of Mahaveer College in Surat. The video of the attack has been shared multiple times on social media.
The men, belongs from two Hindutva groups Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the Bajrang Dal, thrashed the two students over allegations of 'love jihad'. However, the college management has denied the charges.
The three-minute-long video showed the men raining blows and kicks on the student as others stood around. As teachers intervened, they dragged him out, while continuing to thrash and beat him.
The VHP has linked the assault to the gruesome murder of Shraddha Walkar by her live-in partner and called it an action taken in self-defense.
Shraddha Walker was allegedly killed by her live-in partner in May and her body was chopped into pieces before being disposed of in a jungle in Delhi over several months.
