01 Jun 2017
#Justiceforsooraj Campaign has drawn attention and support from all over Tamil Nadu



After one of the students who led the beef protest at IIT-Madras in Chennai was assaulted on Sunday evening, allegedly by students from the Akhil Bharaitya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) a right-wing group, the dean of the institute has refused to act, according to media reports. Sooraj R, a student associated with the Ambedkar Periyar Study Circle, was injured in his right eye in Tuesday's assault allegedly by some students claimed to be Sangh Parivar supporters. Sooraj was surrounded by seven persons near the canteen who assaulted him. The MJRD has reportedly asked for a report on the assault at IIT.

Meanwhile, support for Sooraj has poured in from all quarters. IIT-M Directors have written a strongly worded letter to the Dean. Students too have sent a strongly worded letter to the IIT management and the Dean that contains the minutes of the fateful meeting that resulted in the brutal assault.


Students have also made available the allegedly fake posts by the alleged assailant Manish of the ABVP.
