NIT Silchar: In a serious state, a junior student was transported to Silchar Medical College and Hospital (SMCH). On Saturday, with the help of his family, he filed a police report against 18 older students.
Eighteen National Institute of Technology (NIT) students from Assam’s Silchar have been charged with physically attacking two juniors on campus. The incident occurred on March 31, involving fourth-semester students.
Siddhant Paitya, a junior student, was rushed to Silchar Medical College and Hospital (SMCH) in severe condition. On Saturday, Mr. Paitya, aided by his family, filed a police report against 18 senior students.
The victim, a second-year engineering student, told the media at Silchar Medical College and Hospital, “My automobile was also extensively damaged after I was attacked by a large number of senior students who were not locals. Even if the institute’s administration offered assistance, similar occurrences have occurred in the past, for which I seek justice through the legal system.” According to authorities, many Silchar locals’ identities were listed in a FIR filed at the Ghoongoor Police outpost by the victim’s parents.

Mr Paitya claimed that some seniors bullied him because of his mother tongue and hometown. He stayed at the NIT campus on Tuesday night and parked his automobile in front of Hostel No. 6. According to the student’s police report, the seniors intentionally wrecked the car in order to bully him.
“From the day I arrived here, I’ve been subjected to racial remarks. They wrecked my car that day, and when I confronted them about it, they began assaulting me. They maintained the violence for about an hour “Mr. Paitya stated.
However, in response to the event, NIT Silchar officials cancelled Sunday’s elections for the Gymkhana students body and dissolved the current body. According to a top administrative official at the institute, an investigation team led by Dean Students Welfare has been formed to look into the occurrence. The episode, however, has been described by authorities as a “unfortunate occurrence.”
