Masked men beat to death 22-year-old student on the campus in Patna

Patna: Police said that an altercation over a dandiya night last year was the reason behind the murder of a 22-year-old student on the campus of a college in Patna on Monday.

Masked men armed with sticks attacked Harsh Raj, a third-year student of Vocational English at BN College, when he turned up at Sultanganj Law College yesterday to take an exam, NDTV reported.

Harsh Raj was critically injured in the brutal attack and police rushed him to hospital where he succumbed to injuries during treatment.

"A heinous crime took place on the law college campus yesterday. Some anti-social elements beat up a student, Harsh Raj, so badly that he died later. We formed a Special Investigation Team. We have now arrested the main accused, who planned the attack. His name is Chandan Yadav, a final-year student of Patna college. He has admitted to the crime and we are working to catch the other accused," City SP (East) Bharat Soni reportedly said.

The senior police officer said the attack was triggered by an altercation at a dandiya event at Dussehra last year, adding there was fight between two groups and tension persisted, which led to ‘the planning of this attack. This is a clear case under Section 302 (murder).’

Visuals emerged from the campus showed masked men hitting the student with sticks.

Police are reportedly examining CCTV footage from the campus to identify the accused.

Bihar minister Ashok Choudhary said that he is in touch with authorities, adding: ‘Those guilty will be arrested soon,", adding that the government is with the family in this crisis.

Leader of the Opposition, RJD's Tejashwi Yadav took on the Nitish Kumar-led BJP-JDU government, saying ‘The law and order situation is worsening by the day ever since the NDA government was formed. They have no control on the administration. The guilty must be arrested at the earliest and face strict punishment.’
