JAIPUR — Rajasthan National Students Union of India (NSUI) president Abhimanyu Puniya and his associate Ranveer Singhania were injured in an attack late on Wednesday by a dozen unidentified men on the Rajasthan University campus, police said.

Singhania is a candidate for the university polls due in the state on August 31. The two were rushed to SMS Hospital where Singhaniya reportedly got eight stitches in his head. Puniya was also treated for multiple injuries, hospital sources said.

On Thursday, the two NSUI leaders, returned to the university and staged a dharna against the working of the university administration and the state government.

Ranveer Singhania, who is a candidate for President post in the university polls, told media that the attack took place despite the presence of police force. “This shows it was a coordinated plan at the behest of the state government,” he alleged.

The police said the two were on their way to the hostel on Wednesday night after discussions on student union polls.

Rajasthan university polls are due on Aug 31, except in Jodhpur where elections will be held on September 10 in the wake of Rajasthan Gaurav Yatra being taken out by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.

A case has been registered against the miscreants and hunt is on to nab them, police said.

Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot, former chief minister Ashok Gehlot and several other Congress leaders condemned the attack on NSUI candidate for president post Ranveer Singhania and state NSUI president.

The Congress leaders demanded a speedy probe into the matter and said that culprits should be put behind bars.

Ashok Gehlot expressed his concern in a tweet. He said, ‘Attack on NSUI President candidate for RUSU Election Ranveer Singhania and NSUI State president Abhimanyu Poonia at RU campus last night is condemnable. I wish them speedy recovery. There must be an investigation and culprits must be arrested asap.’
