Several students were injured during a clash between students and police personnel in Assam’s Karimganj district on Friday following a teacher’s arrest in a molestation case.

The incident took place at Karimganj College.

According to the reports, a teacher of the college had allegedly molested a girl student and when the victim girl informed other students they thrashed the accused teacher.

The teacher was beaten up by a section of students, including the victim.

When the situation became out of control, the college authorities called the local police.

The police restored to lathicharge after the students gheraoed the principal’s office and tried to attack the accused teacher.

Following the incident, the angry students came out from the college campus and blocked the road for several hours and demanding to arrest the accused teacher.

The protest ended after the police took the accused teacher, identified as Partha Sarathi Das, to their custody.

Karimganj Circle Officer Rakesh Deka, however, said the police had already arrested the accused teacher following a complaint lodged by the victim student. “Police will conduct an inquiry and the accused teacher is now under police custody,” Rakesh Deka said.
