A student in Hyderabad was allegedly attacked on Sunday by a group of men, because he was apparently mistaken to be a Kashmiri.

25-years-old Amol Singh was coming back to his hostel in the Hyderabad Central University after a protest against alleged police atrocities in Kashmir. He was allegedly attacked by a group of 20-25 ABVP members. Singh said that the ABVP members mistook him for Bilal, a former student of the university who hailed from Kashmir.

Bilal finished his PhD and left for Kashmir a couple of months ago. He used to be active in campus politics and was vocal about the plight of Kashmiri Muslims.

The ABVP students barged inside the hostel and attacked Singh. Clashes broke out between the two rival political wings. The Security guards did not even try to intervene in the scene.

However, ABVP leader N Sushil Kumar alleged that Singh’s allegation is completely false and said that the ABVP supporters were attacked instead by students supporting Kashmiris.

Both student groups gave written complaints to the university and to the police on Sunday.
