The petition, published on, says that the college contingent from Jain University’s Centre for Management Studies (CMS) staged an “incredibly casteist and insensitive” skit at the event. The petitioners, who remain anonymous, approached the organizers citing that the skit normalized caste discrimination in the name of humor.

The competition was about advertising imaginary products at the event called Mad Ads. Police said judges at the competition demanded an apology from the students. The skit by a group of students named The Delroys Boys, ended up with casteist dialogues, even targeting the father of the Indian Constitution and champion of backward classes, Dr BR Ambedkar.

“The skit they performed showcased a man from a lower caste background trying to date an upper-caste woman. The makers turned BR Ambedkar into ‘Beer Ambedkar’ and used several other problematic phrases like ‘Why be Dalit when you can be D-Lit’, to supposedly spark humor,” was claimed by petitioners according to a report of The News Minute. The criminal complaint has been filed under section of SC/ST Act, 153A, 295, 499, 500, 503, 504,506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Dalit activist from Mumbai has also filed a complaint against this skit performance. The complaint has been filed before Superintendent Of Police in Maharashtra’s Nanded. It was filed by Aakshay Bansode, State Member of the Vanchit Bahujan Yuva Aaghadi. It urged the police to treat the complaint as an FIR and take necessary action against the performers and the university authorities.
