Two students from the group have been hospitalised, severely injured from the attack. A group of girl and boy students were playing Holi as the attack happened.Subsequently, many versions have emerged of what really transpired. The students claim the assailants had political connection and while some locals say the college management was behind the attack. However police have denied all the claims and said it was a clear case of moral policing. â€śWhile celebrating Holi there were some issues over boys pouring colors on girls. The college had denied permission to conduct a Holi event inside campus. Some of the locals did not like the fact that boys were smearing colors on girls, and while an argument was going on two men from outside attacked these boys very badlyâ€ť, Alappuzha Nooranad Sub Inspector of police told The News Minute. â€śThey (attackers) were college treasurerâ€™s men.
