Four students of the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) in Varanasi have been arrested, one year after they assaulted and stripped a physically challenged youth and forced him to perform obscene acts that were even filmed by them, police said Friday. The arrests came after the affected student, a native of Bihar, threatened to commit suicide if no action was taken against the four. “Ashish Gautam, Grijesh Tiwari, Mohit Shukla and Anuj Lal were arrested late Thursday after the varsity authorities registered a case against them,” police said.
BHU officials got the case registered against the four students only after Upadhyay -- who had left for his native place, Buxar in Bihar, after allegedly being tortured by the students -- returned this year and submitted copies of a letter Sep 9, 2010, to the university that he would commit suicide if action was not taken against the offending students. When contacted, BHU’s chief proctor H.C.S. Rathore, said, “Yes, it definitely needs to be probed why the action was not taken in 2009 when the student had registered the complaint.”
“We have initiated an enquiry in this regard. Stringent action would be taken against all those who had assaulted Upadhyay,” he added.
