The student party has handed over a video recording to the police as well, where a group of students and teachers are seen marching inside the college. According to the video shared by ABVP, which surfaced a day after the incident, the protesters can allegedly be heard shouting the slogan: “Hum kya chahte — aazadi, Bastar chahta — aazadi, Kashmir maange — aazadi.”
