Kumar said that “some elements” have been targeting him for speaking against the Vice Chancellor of the university and the recent post was another ”excuse” to thrash him.
In a tweet by news agency ANI on Saturday, two pictures were posted — one during the incident and the other after the alleged thrashing. The first picture shows an injured Kumar lying on an ambulance seat with both his knees bandaged from injuries. In another picture, a mob is seen standing around a person while a man kicks him. The face of the man getting beaten is not shown in the picture.
