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, two of them have now been arrested.
