Akhil Pushpan, 22, unit secretary of SFI Maharaja’s College and a native of Karunagappally, and Adarsh K Nair, 20, a first-year degree student hailing from Kozhikode, were arrested by the Central police following a complaint lodged by KSU leaders. 

They were later released on bail.The incident took place around 1.30am when Mohammed Niyas resisted a section of SFI workers’ move to store ganja in his hostel room. The SFI workers assaulted him and he sustained injury in his nose. He was later shifted to Indira Gandhi Hospital. “The college hostel has turned into a den of SFI goons. The SFI workers have been torturing KSU activists for the past one week,” alleged Alosious Xavier, KSU district president.

KSU took out a march to the college hostel demanding action against the accused behind the attack. Fifteen people who took part in the march were booked for unlawful assembly. However, SFI said the case was fabricated after its leaders warned the students against bringing drugs to the college.
