Student attempts suicide after being assaulted for sporting saffron shawl: Kodagu, K’taka

An incident of an alleged suicide attempt by a student of Government Polytechnic College in Madikeri’s Kushalnagar has come to light. The student identified as Prajwal reportedly took the step after he was attacked by some of the hostel residents for wearing a saffron shawl.

According to reports, Muslim students were angered by Prajwal’s saffron shawl and his alleged attempt to make a fellow Muslim student sport saffron as well which was supposedly captured on video. Annoyed Muslim residents of the hostel then attacked Prajwal who is said to have immediately called the leaders of the Hindu organizations for help.

As per available information, Prajwal was upset with the fact that he didn’t get justice from hostel authorities which forced him to take the step. However, his friends rushed him to the Kushalanagar Government Hospital where he is undergoing treatment. There have also been allegations of discrimination and intimidation against the warden though his role in the entire episode isn’t clear as yet.

The Kushalnagar police are currently investigating the case and eight persons have been questioned in this regard.

HinduPost reached out to local sources who confirmed the veracity of the incident and that Prajwal had indeed attempted suicide. However, other details of the case are not yet clear and the article will be updated as and when further information is obtained.
