Nine students of the Assam Engineering College (AEC) have been arrested on false allegations of vandalising a wedding venue early on 21st February, 2018. The arrests were made following a complaint by the concerned family at the Jalukbari police station, Guwahati.
The Assamese media has brought huge defamation to the college and the accused individuals without having substantial proof.
In the morning of 21st Feb, police came and 5 students were taken to the police station to give statement where three of them were the victims of last night. They themselves went with their full hope to get justice. But after a certain time, it came to light that they were being arrested.
Then, four other students went to police outpost to lodge an FIR for the incident of last night but instead of listening anything , those four were arrested as well.
The arrested students were beaten up brutally by the police and they had injuries too.
Even when the Assam Engineering College Union Body members approached Jalukbari Outpost for the Arrest memo and to lodge an FIR, some of their members were slapped by the police and harassed for almost four hours by officials on-duty which is totally against the act of human rights. They didn't even try to listen to the other side of the story and they alleged all the students with sections 147, 148, 149, 447, 307, 354, 387, 325, 395, 387, 506. (molestation, attempt to murder, dacoit, robbery are some of them).
So, the 9 convicted students should be freed without any charges as they are not guilty.
