The state has witnessed frequent clash between supporters of BJP and CPI-M. Earlier on February 21, five students were injured in a clash between ABVP and SFI supporters at Dharmanagar Degree College.
According to reports the injured students were ABVP supporters. It was alleged that the SFI led union leaders of the college had threatened the ABVP supporters of dire consequences saying that March 3 will be their last day in the college. Results of just concluded Tripura Assembly elections will be declared on March 3.
Raising voice against the threat the ABVP supporters reacted and a quarrel between the two groups broke out.
The SFI leaders however denied the allegations of the ABVP members. The incident has triggered huge resentment among the locals of the area.
Two of the injured are identified as Vicky Debnath and Prasenjit Datta. Dharmanagar police immediately reached the spot and brought the situation under control.
