Divyank also accused Director Vyas for mentally torturing Bhavik. Vyas used to insult Bhavik in front of other students and would threaten him that he would not be allowed to appear for the placements. All this created enough tension for Bhavik. The college administration says that Bhavik was not doing well and had a backlog in 7 subjects. He was warned by the college to pay attention to his studies but he never improved. He was not threatened by college admin but was asked to follow rules.
