BackgroundWhat was alleged before Holi?

In late February this year, two Lady Shri Ram College students had alleged that balloons filled with gooey substance were thrown at them. They "believed" that they had semen in them.

While one can't ignore the hooliganism by unruly people under the guise of Holi celebrations, these allegations seemed far-fetched.

Scientifically speaking, they sounded rather 'impractical.'

The question now is - will mainstream media, which was quick to share this news, apologize?

Journalist Sagarika had questioned the "Hindu pride"
