In a shocking incident in Delhi's prestigious Hindu college, two students were brutally assaulted by their college mates simply because they were Dalits.

Horror story

Like a fugitive, a battered Mritunjay Kumar, hostel president of Delhi's prestigious Hindu college has taken shelter in the neighbouring Gwyer Hall hostel.

On Friday night, Mritunjay and his friend Bharat Rohin, the mess secretary were allegedly beaten mercilessly by their hostel mates because they are Dalits.

'Dalit Hostel'

The most badly injured is Bharat's elder brother Vikrant who was also in the room at that time. His back has been tattooed by the hundreds of lathi blows that went on through the night.

"They thrashed me. They abused me and said that ever since I had become the president of the hostel, it had become a Dalit hostel," alleged Mritunjay.

The boys also allege that the hostel warden threatened them to not to tell the truth and instead make a statement that they had met with an accident.
