The Vice-chancellor of the university gave a statement on the morning of Wednesday regarding the incident. He mentioned the state government's willing to take care of all the expenses for his shifting and treatment at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi.

These will include any special examination format for the student if deemed necessary and also look into options for employment in the future.
Mentioning the recent incident, he said that only a meagre 1 % of the students of the university are involved in activities such as ragging. The VC personally thanked the Chief Minister for pointing out the shortcomings of the university administration regarding ragging incident and ensured strict action against those found slacking in their jobs. He also called ragging a social evil and pointed out the recent events in IITG and AMC. When asked about the involvement of the current General Secretary in the incident, he added that police are looking into the matter and that if found guilty, he will lose not only the position but also his seat in the university.
According to sources, Divya Jyoti Dutta, Palash Dutta, and Mustak Hussain are the wardens who were suspended by the Authorities of Dibrugarh University.
The victim received several fractures including his backbone ant which makes his shifting to any other place a very risky affair. Specialists at the hospital have also mentioned that they can undertake the necessary operation by themselves mentioning the availability of necessary resources and expertise.
CM Himanta Biswa Sarma had earlier expressed utmost dissatisfaction about the ragging incident at Dibrugarh University on Tuesday. He said, "It's the failure of the University authorities in their fight against ragging. Today's Cabinet meeting also expressed dissatisfaction over the Dibrugarh University ragging incident. The Cabinet requested the police to apprehend the absconding accused. DU authorities will come under the ambit of the police investigation. The government will not spare anyone. Maybe, the police may arrest a few university persons."
The Chief Minister said that the government would bear the entire cost of treatment for the injured student, Ananda Sarma. Ananda Sarma said from the hospital 'those who ragged me are not pardonable. However, I don't want the disastrous end of any student's career."
