However, the varsity authorities have so far not taken any action against the warden of the hostel.

“How can the warden give permission to Rahul Chetri, a former student and general secretary of Dibrugarh University to stay at the PNGB hostel? The warden should be booked or suspended for the lapses on his party,” said a student, who did not wish to be named.

According to reports, Anand Sarma‘s mother Sarita Sharma has lodged an FIR at Dibrugarh Police station against the culprits for allegedly being involved in ragging and torturing her son mentally & physically.
