“Surprisingly, the large crowd that gathered at the gate brutally attacked the convoy, destroying three cars in the process.

“The convoy had to quickly turn and came back to the varsity campus. So, how did the DG cause it, could he have arranged his own attack?

“In fact, they were there on the invitation of the Comrade himself.”
