A student, Tiapong Tzudir from Nagaland pursuing his post-graduation degree in sociology at Mumbai University was shocked to find out that two of the three accused who hurled racial abuses, and threw water-filled balloons at him, were college students.

As per reports from Times of India, Tzudir also inquired whether he could withdraw the case.

The police registered an FIR on March 2 after tracing the three accused—a 20-year-old student, a 17-year-old student, and a 24-year-old.

On Thursday night, the three were questioned and then released after a notice was issued.

Tzudir, who is also a YouTuber, uploaded the video of the incident on his Instagram account on Monday. In the video, the accused were seen trying to cover their faces.

Following the incident, Tzudir shared the story on his social media page, expressing how he felt bullied in his own nation and how this was not the first time he had encountered such an upsetting situation. Tzudir and his friends later returned to the same area and held a silent demonstration with anti-racism banners and posters to raise awareness.
