Tensions soared in Halakura, Dhubri district on November 25 as locals erupted in outrage following the arrest of Naresh Chandra Rai, the president of the AKRASU unit in Halakura. Rai is detained on suspicion of carrying out a heinous act against an eighth-grade student from Halakura Jatiya Vidyalaya.
The incident occurred as the young girl, on her way home after tuition, found herself in a terrifying situation. Allegedly under the influence of alcohol, Naresh Chandra Rai was accused of inappropriately handling the student.
