Police Inspector Sharief who noticed the incident had tried to stop the attackers. Later Savio had lodged a complaint.

Traffic inspector Sharif, who was at the spot, intervened and stopped the activists from harming the students.

It was only after the video of the incident went viral that the Police Department chose to arrest the five men including Bajrangdal district pramukh Preetham Shetty, Suratkal unit leader Arshith, Srinivas, Rakesh and Abhishek on Monday night.

Meanwhile they were booked under IPC Section 341, 323, and 504 and then released on bail in the station itself. The decision to grant them bail in the station itself is now widely criticised.
