The person responsible for all this was Gokul Sharma, SHO Patan Police Station and around twenty five other policemen. The MLA of the area, who has mining interests and whose Munshi filed a false case against Sanwal Ram was used as the pretext to intimidate and terrorise the students.
In the press conference organised by PUCL Rajasthan at Vinoba Gyan Mandir at 2 o clock, the victims of police repression, the six students were present with the senior members of the PUCL like harkesh bugaliya and kailash meena headed by the President of PUCL Rajasthan, advocate prem krishan Sharm who condemned the violations of human rights of the PUCL intern students and called the attack a matter of serious concern.
