The Gauhati Town Club was vandalized allegedly by several Cotton College students on Wednesday night as scuffle between students from the college and National Law University went out of control.
Police said that the incident occurred when fifth-year students of National Law University were hosting a farewell party at the Gauhati Town Club on Wednesday night.
“The law students were having a farewell party at GTC when some of them allegedly had a confrontation with the boarders of Cotton College boys’ hostel. Stones were pelted and several glass windows of the GTC were damaged. CCTV footage has been collected and identification process is on,” a senior police official was quoted as saying by The Times of India.
In a report by The Telegraph, Guwahati police commissioner Hiren Nath said that even though the youths identified themselves as Cotton College students, the premiere college has denied any involvement of its students. “We are now investigating into the case and the police will be able to identify the culprits after completion of the investigation,” the top cop was quoted as saying.
