5 SFI Students Allegedly Attacked By ABVP Activists
Five SFI supporters were allegedly beaten up with cricket stumps and wooden planks by ABVP activists at Visva Bharati University on Wednesday night.

Two of the injured students were admitted to Pearson Memorial Hospital at Bolpur where the attackers allegedly entered and assaulted them again. Three other injured students were later discharged.
