Massive protests erupted on the Indian Institute of Technology-Banaras Hindu University (IIT-BHU) campus following an alleged molestation incident. A student claimed she was assaulted by three unidentified men while walking on campus at night. Around 2,000 students boycotted classes and staged a sit-in, demanding the arrest of the culprits, improved campus security, and the director’s resignation. An FIR was filed, and despite assurances from the IIT-BHU administration, students continued their protest until evening, insisting on the director’s presence. The survivor detailed the incident, including being forcibly disrobed, photographed, and threatened by the assailants.
