A case was filed against Sai Bhagirath after college authorities lodged a complaint, the police said
Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Telangana president Bandi Sanjay Kumar’s son, Bandi Sai Bhagirath, was booked by the Dundigal police on Tuesday for assaulting a classmate at Mahindra University.
A case was filed against Sai Bhagirath after college authorities lodged a complaint, the police said.
In a separate incident, a video showing Bhagirath abusing a student went viral on social media. The incident happened a few days ago.
The BJP leader’s son, who is pursuing a management course, was angry with the victim, Sriram, for allegedly getting close to a sister of his friend. In the video, Bhagirath can be heard hurling abuse at the victim and then slapping and punching him.
Leaders and supporters of Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) widely shared the video and trained guns on the BJP leader. The victim also released a video admitting that he had troubled a girl, which angered Bhagirath, and the latter thrashed him. Sriram said he no longer has any problem with Bhagirath and termed the video of the assault useless.
However, the victim did not file a complaint with the police, but the university lodged a complaint based on which a case was registered.
