The senior students asked him to cut his hair as well as moustache and one of them slapped the victim on his face. Again, on January 12, the accused reprimanded him for not following their direction and threatened to cut his hair and moustache the next day if he did not do so himself.

Police Commissioner said that, meanwhile, the accused students had also summoned the victim to their paying guest accommodation twice along with some of his batch-mates asking them to cut their hair. Senior students also assaulted the victims. When the victim returned home and told his parents that he was not interested in continuing his studies there, his worried parents made further inquiries with him and later contacted the police seeking help in getting their hostel and college fee refunded, the Commissioner said.

He gave the names of the accused as Jishnu (20), P.V. Srikantha (20), Ashwath (20), Sayanth (22), Abhirath Rajiv (21), all third B.Pharma students, P. Rahul (21), Jishnu (20), Mukthar Ali (19) and K. Mohammed Razeem (20), all second B.Pharma students.
