As per news, some medical students were on their way to the hostel early morning on Sunday around 3:30 a.m. During this time, Hathipole police patrol was on duty. These students stopped to have food in the mess in front of Emergency. Hathipole police followed them on the basis of doubt and started interrogating them. Police even asked for the documents pertaining to bike which the students did not have. In the absence of papers and ID cards, police seized the bike.
The disappointed students reached PG Hostel and took along resident doctor Indra Ram to the police station to get back the bike at 5 a.m. This caused an argument between police and the students. In the meantime Dr. Rajveer Choudhary was also informed who intervened in this matter. After this the bike was returned to the students.

Sources also say that the medical students threatened to protest against the action of police since their request was not being heard. Police reportedly misbehaved with students because they were out of hostel during late night hours.media reports
