Guwahati: In a shocking incident, a girl was molested by 15 lads when she was returning home from a party. The eyewitnesses told that her clothes were tore and boys had assaulted her physically. The police arrived at the spot after half an hour and rescued her from brutal apathy.
A total of four persons have been arrested in connection with the incident in front of a bar on the Guwahati-Shillong Road on Monday night, which led to a public outcry after a video of the shocking incident was uploaded on Youtube.
