Kolkata: Describing the students who protested against him at a university here as "cowards and hooligans", Union minister Babul Supriyo on Friday said that they would not be dealt with in the same manner as they had done, but "rehabilitated mentally" so that they "behave as students".

Posting pictures of his assault at Jadavpur University campus on 19 September, Supriyo, Union Minister of State for Environment, said those who were involved in his assault would be "found out" soon.

"We shall rehabilitate you mentally so that you and your Hooligan Friends (all footages available with the media) behave like you are supposed to behave as students, till then," he said.

Zeroing in on a picture of a student pulling him by his hair, Supriyo in another tweet, wondered what action would the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government take against the student for assaulting him (Supriyo) without any provocation.

Babul Supriyo was on Thursday shown black flags and heckled by a section of students at Jadavpur University, who also stopped him from leaving the campus, prompting West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar to rush to the campus.

Supriyo had gone to the university to address a seminar organised by the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) - the student wing of the RSS.

The governor, who is the chancellor of the university, too faced demonstrations by the students belonging to Left-leaning organisations including SFI and AFSU, Naxalite students' wing AISA, besides a few members of the TMCP, university sources said.

The agitating students ended the blockade after the police and the university teachers persuaded them and the governor left the place with the minister in his car.
