A case has been registered against the two accused at the Gandhinagar police station in Bellary. An FIR has been registered under IPC Sections 323, 324, 504, 506 and Sections 3(1)(r), 3(1)(S), 3(2)(vA) of the ST/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.

Regarding the case, Raghu C, State President of the Bhim Army Student Unit, said, “Even in the era of untouchability in the villages, children come from the town to the city with the dream of higher education. They send their parents to the cities because they want their children to get a better education in the cities. However, it is shocking that casteism is also happening in hostels and other areas of cities.
