As per report, police registered a case on May 24 against the Sub-Inspector and five other police personnel following a direction from a judicial magistrate based on a private complaint from a 19-year-old student of Terdal First Grade Government Degree College, Naveed Hasanasab Tharathari.

According to the FIR, the incident occurred on February 18 this year.

In his petition, Tharathari stated that he had gone to the college wearing a skull cap but the principal of the college denied him entry “though there is no government order restricting the use of a skull cap inside the college.”
