Wed, Jan 6 07:48 PM

Patna, Jan 6 (PTI) Condemning the alleged attack on Bihari students at a hostel of a private engineering college at Udaipur, the RJD and LJP today asked Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to take immediate steps to bring the perpetrators to book. "It is a highly condemnable incident .

Biharis are unnecessarily being targetted in other parts of the country," RJD supremo Lalu Prasad said in a statement. He alleged that the students were not only subjected to "insult and torture" but were also assaulted with sticks when they reportedly protested against ragging at the college hostel.

"Instead of taking action against the perpetrators of ragging, Bihari students were sent behind the bars by the police," LJP chief Ramvilas Paswan alleged. Leader of the Opposition in Bihar and former chief minister Rabri Devi also condemned the incident and called for action against the perpetrators.
