“With the help of the government, we will arrange for air ambulance to shift Anand to AIIMS, New Delhi, tomorrow.

Earlier interacting with Anand’s mother, VC Hazarika assured help and said that he will continue to help Anand in his personal capacity in future.
Anand, a M. Com 1st semester student of the Commerce Department of the University in eastern Assam was brutally tortured by senior students of the University forcing him to jump off the second floor of his hostel to escape his torturers. He is undergoing treatment in ICU since November 26 midnight.
