The Dr. B.R. Ambedkar post-matric hostel in Sangameshwar Nagar in Belagavi on Sunday night was attacked by a group of 20-25 youths and vandalized the property of the hostel.
The mob entered the hostel wielding rods, cricket bats and sticks around 10 p.m. They threw stones at the doors and windows, damaged bikes and bicycles and shouted abuses against the inmates who huddled up in their rooms to protect themselves.
The total strength of the hostel is nearly 300. The incident has been captured by the CCTV.
Police suspect that eve-teasing could have led to attack.
