Hyderabad: Hyderabad Central University (HCU) has sought a report after a group of students screened a controversial BBC documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on campus.

Hyderabad Central University Fraternity Movement (HCUFM), a student body, organized the special screening of `India: The Modi Question’.

Fraternity Movement tweeted that the screening was held on campus. It also shared photos of the event. About 200 students reportedly watched the first episode of the documentary.

The screening took place on Sunday evening at the Velivada. Velivada is a temporary structure on campus built after Rohit Vemula, a research scholar. He was expelled from the hostel along with four of his friends. After Rohit Vemula's suicide, it became a symbol of resistance for students from marginalized communities.

Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has demanded action against organizers for flouting the rules. It also demanded action against those who watched the documentary.

ABVP said conspiracies are being hatched to trigger riots in the country once again and that is why this documentary has been released.

Later the university authorities informed the police. Police have asked for a written complaint so that a case would be registered and an investigation started. Gachibowli police said they hadn't received any written complaint so far.
