In a shameful incident in Benares Hindu University, a second year B. Com student Ajit Kumar Upadhyaya was subjected to beating and unnatural sex by six senior students and the obscene MMS was recorded on a cellphone and circulated among students the next day. 



The incident, which took place on October 13, 2009, came to light two years later when the victim after approaching BHU authorities, who had turned a deaf ear to his complaints, posted his complaint along with the MMS clip on the website of UGC. 



The BHU authorities then took action, and four out of the six senior students were arrested on Friday. The six culprits, according to Ajit, who indulged in this shameful act are:  

• Ashish Gautam (management faculty)

• Raghav Aalok (B.Com last year)

• Anuj Lal (B. Com last year, presently in Law faculty)

• Girijesh Tiwari (B.Com last year)

• Mohit Shukla (B.Com last year)

• Rajak Anand (B.Com last year)



According to the complainant, the six culprits took him away from his hostel room on the pretext of  taking him somewhere. Ajit was taken inside a room, where his clothes were taken off and he was subjected to harsh beatings and unnatural sex. The entire act was filmed on a cellphone by one of the culprits and circulated the next day among the students.

A frightened Ajit left the hostel and went away from his studies for nearly a year. On his return in March this year, he informed the University administration  but the officials turned a deaf ear to his request.  Finally, on September 9, Ajit posted his complaint along with the MMS clip on the UGC website.



Says Ajit, “if no action is taken against the culprits, I will take away my life. I cannot live this life where ultimate indignities have been heaped on me.”  

The most disgusting part of this incident is that Ajit is physically challenged in his leg.
