The students were sent to judicial custody on July 27 for assaulting petrol pump workers on 25th July.
According to the advocate, Harshvardhan Jain, lawyer of students, a plea was filed today morning in the court for allowing the students to appear in their exams. Jain said “the exams consist of a viva and practical and being a first year students of MBBS, it is a question of their career”.
Harshvardhan (in photo above) said that media had created hype in this case by linking it to the resident doctors issue which created unnecessary complications; otherwise we could have got bail.
