Varanasi: A student was on Monday slapped by an unidentified person during the centenary year convocation at the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) where Prime Minister Narendra Modi was also present.
The student named Ashutosh Singh was raising slogans, demanding the revival of students union when some unknown person slapped him.
“The students union has been prohibited since 1997. The students here are suppressed and not allowed to raise their voice,” he said.
Last month, during a convocation ceremony at the Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University in Lucknow, a student stood up from the audience and raised slogans against Modi.
