In a shocking incident at around 1 AM on Tuesday night, around 300 students from Assam Engineering College (AEC) went on a rampage and gate crashed a wedding venue in Jalukbari. Some of the students were allegedly drunk when the incident took place.

The detained students have been identified as Mrinmoy Chakraborty, Hirak Jyoti Nath, Shivam Karmakar, Manash Pratim Sharma, Gautam Moyan, Diganta Nath, Harshajit Sharma, Subram Prakash Kalita and Manash Baishya. These students will be arrested if they are found guilty. 



The students, armed with hockey sticks and other weapons, went on to attack and abuse everyone who came in their path including women, children and the groom inside the venue last night. Few women from the groom’s side alleged the drunken students of molesting them and provided a video proof of few of the students trying to forcefully pull and indecently touch a woman. 



 It was reported that the AEC students had a fight with a truck driver last night near the place where the wedding was taking place and reached the venue in search of the driver. They attacked the people at the wedding after they were asked to leave.

The groom and bride’s family also accused the students of attacking with beer bottles and damaging all vehicles that were parked outside the venue.
