ITANAGAR, Jun 22: In a commendable display of cooperation, the Special Police Unit for North Eastern Region (SPUNER) and Uttar Pradesh Police have successfully resolved the case of two Arunachal students who were assaulted by a group of locals in Greater Noida.
The incident came to light when two students from Arunachal Pradesh, studying at Sharda University and ITI College in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, were brutally attacked by a group of local boys on June 19 without any provocation.
According to Radhe Yangfo, the convenor of the Arunachal Students Union of Delhi (ASUD), the victims, whose names have been withheld, were enjoying an ice cream near the hostel gate at around 9:30 pm when the local boys approached them and inexplicably demanded that they lick the half-eaten ice cream.
“One of the students managed to escape the clutches of the miscreants and contacted us,” Yangfo explained. Upon receiving the distress call, the ASUD team immediately traveled from Delhi to Noida and filed a complaint at the local police station.
Yangfo further stated, “The incident occurred when the two students refused to comply with the demand to lick the half-eaten ice cream.” He also revealed that the duo sustained internal injuries during the assault.
Taking swift action, SPUNER and the Uttar Pradesh Police summoned the culprits and insisted on compensating the victims’ medical expenses. Additionally, the local boys have agreed to cover any further medical costs that may arise during regular check-ups.
ASUD expressed its appreciation for the prompt response and delivery of justice by the SPUNER team, led by P.N. Khirmey, and the officers of Knowledge Park Police Station in Uttar Pradesh.
This incident highlights the importance of addressing such acts of violence and ensuring the safety and security of students from all regions in educational institutions across the country.
