On August 12 and August 13, ABVP even staged protest, accusing it of inciting hatred against the state.



 

However, Himanshi Matta, Amnesty International India’s spokeswoman in India, said, “The allegations mentioned in the complaint are without any basis. The event was an open door event and people were coming and going. No staff members were involved.”
