Seven students, including three from Jawaharlal Nehru University were allegedly beaten up by a group of people at Asola Wildlife Sanctuary in Faridabad on August 14 evening.
The incident occurred at around 9pm.
The students said the attackers also “molested” a female student when they resisted.
The woman claimed that the police had also misbehaved with them when they went to register a complaint at Surajkund police station.
A zero FIR was filed later at Vasant Vihar police station, following which a probe has been initiated by Faridabad Police.
“We have identified four men from the village,” said Hanif Qureshi, Faridabad commissioner.

They asked the relationship between me and the boys.” Soon, they grew violent and 8-9 people gathered. “They started assaulting us and hurled abuses,” the complaint said, adding that the ordeal lasted two hours and they were rescued by two locals.
A case for assault, molestation, misbehaviour with a woman and criminal intimidation has been registered.
