Guwahati: The situation in Assam's Gauhati University (GU) deteriorated after the cops attempted to crackdown on protesting students of the university on August 2.

As per reports, the angry students held massive agitations on the university campus on August 2 regarding the results of the degree fifth-semester examinations that were declared on July 29.

The protesting students have alleged that there are various anomalies in the results, due to which, they decided to hold peaceful demonstrations against the issue.

However, the protest took a violent turn after the police tried to stop the protesting students by forcefully pushing them one by one into a bus and tried to take them to the police station.

Many protesting students including the likes of Hemen Kalita, the president of the Post-Graduate Students' Union (PGSU) of the university have been apprehended by the police.

Meanwhile, the students of the university have condemned the incident and they have demanded an answer from the university authority on the atrocities by the police on the protesters.

"The Jalukbari Police and the authorities of the university tried to break down a peaceful protest that was organised by over 500 students against the alleged anomalies of the fifth-semester results. We condemn the grievous action by the police on the students. We want justice and we will protest until our demands are heard," said Biki Sarma, the General Secretary of GU.
