GUWAHATI: Two IIT-Guwahati students have been detained by the police for allegedly molesting three students of Gauhati University.

The alleged molestation took place on February 3 during “Alcheringa”, the annual fest of IIT-Guwahati, but the girls lodged a complaint with the police only on Tuesday.

“In their complaint, the three girls alleged that the two accused IIT students had spiked their drinks before committing the crime. We picked up the duo from the IIT campus last (Tuesday) night and our investigation is on,” the police told Express.

“The girls have already undergone medical tests and we are awaiting reports,” they said.

The police did not give the names of the accused on the ground that their involvement in the alleged incident was yet to be established. One of the girls said the incident had taken place after 10:30 PM on that day.

“As it was late, we were trying to get accommodation in the IIT campus to spend the night as guests. It was then that we were accosted by the duo who offered to help us. They offered us the spiked soft drinks and after having a sip, I felt dizzy. Then they got into the act. I tried to resist but lost my consciousness soon,” she alleged.

The police are trying to find out what made the girls to decide on spending the night at the IIT when cabs are available throughout the night in the city and its outskirts. The distance between the IIT and Gauhati University is less than 15km.
