Bengaluru, March 24, 2019 (PPI-OT): A 24-year-old civil engineering student of Kashmiri was assaulted by a group of four Hindu youth at the CMRIT College in Bengaluru, the capital city of India’s Karnataka state. The victim told media that he had no idea why he was assaulted. Absar Zahoor Dhar, from Srinagar in Kashmir, suffered grievous injuries to his hand, head and face.
Trouble began for Dhar when he had gone to the gym. As he was having coffee at Madouk Cafe, a group of four to five people, one of whom identified himself as Nithin, approached Dhar him. They were armed with iron rods. They dragged him out of the shop and began assaulting him without any provocation. “My friends rushed to my help or else they could have killed me,” Dhar told media.
Absar Zahoor Dhar, who sustained injuries to his hand, head and face, was rushed to a nearby hospital by his friends. Dhar said he continues to live in fear, not even attending his classes, as all the four accused have obtained bail. “I am living in fear and not attending college as the assailants roam free in front of my house as if nothing has happened,” said Dhar.
