Some inmates quarantines at Mazbat College created an unruly situation on Friday burning some of the beds and other properties of the institution allegedly for not allowing them to go home after three inmates tested COVID-19 positive.

Videos of the inmates setting quarantine centre properties on fire have gone viral on social media.

The bizarre incident, however, was later brought under control by Mazbat Revenue Circle Officer Dhritiman Das.

Meanwhile, four persons of Mazbat tested COVID-19 positive taking the toll in Udalguri to 65.
