Cuttack: The main accused in the Ravenshaw University assault case, Subhrajit Ray, moved the Orissa High Court on Friday seeking anticipatory bail on the apprehension of being arrested by police.
Ray is one of the accused in the recent attack on a former student of the Ravenshaw Junior College at the premises of the university. Later, a video of some students roughing up the youth went viral.
The victim lodged an FIR with the Malgodown police regarding the incident on Monday, following which a case was registered against 10 students and police arrested a Plus III second year student, Anshuman Mohanty.
While police are yet to arrest the nine other accused, a group of students of the university staged a demonstration in front of the Vice-Chancellor’s office and city DCP office protesting the arrest of Anshuman on the charge of beating up the student.
The students said Anshuman had no involvement in the incident.
