She reveals how desperate pleas by her and her friends before the BHU guards to recognise the men despite sharing their description invoked scornful remarks. “While I was almost unconscious and weeping, my friends, approached guards but their reaction was strange. They made sarcastic remarks on why we move outside after 6pm.

The girl has also disclosed that one of the male students, who had seen the incident, showed up the courage to describe assailants as “one man in white and other in red shirt” but security guards did not bother to make any attempts to find them.
