Guwahati Police on March 4 arrested three students of Cotton University for allegedly attacking a BJP worker in the city.
As per inputs, the three students, who are reportedly hostel boarders, allegedly knocked down the BJP worker identified as Bijoy Pathak with their two-wheeler while in an inebriated state.
This soon led to an altercation, following which one of the three students alerted other hostel boarders, who beat up the BJP worker, leaving him severely injured.
While three of them were initially detained by the Pan Bazar police, and now all have been arrested.
The alleged attack on Bijoy Pathak by inebriated students near Guwahati railway station has raised concerns about the safety of individuals in public spaces, particularly political leaders. The incident is a stark reminder of the growing trend of violence among students, and the need for stricter measures to prevent such incidents from occurring.
