BONGAIGAON, Sept 16 � Two activists of the Hiteswar Barman faction of the AKRSU were injured when a group of oil tanker drivers attacked them in front of the main gate of the sales branch office of the Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) at Dhaligaon in Chirang district today.

A six-member delegation of the AKRSU (H), AAMSU and ABMSU had gone to meet the sales manager of the branch to call for strict measures against the illegal trade in fuel, allegedly going on unchecked in Chirang and Bongaigaon districts.

Since the manager was not present at that time, the delegation talked to other officers and left the office. As they came out of the main gate of the office, a group of oil tanker drivers allegedly attacked them without any provocation.

Two AKRSU (H) activists � Rajani Chaudhury, Chirang district AKRSU general secretary and Pranjal Chaudhury, its vice president � were seriously injured in the attack and later admitted to the civil hospital at the Chirang district headquarters, Kajalgaon.

The other members of the delegation had to run back to the office to save themselves, said Gulzar Hussain, president, Chirang district unit of the AAMSU, who was also a member of the delegation.

Soon after the incident, an FIR was lodged by AKRSU activist Pranjal Chaudhury at the Dhaligaon PS against the accused.

The police picked up five local leaders of the union and detained them at the police station in this connection.

The Dhaligaon branch president of the Assam Petroleum Mazdoor Union, Dimple Boro and its vice president Mohammad Khan, who are among those detained, however, denied their involvement in the incident.

The student organisations are ready to launch an agitation over the incident if the police fail to take action against the accused, warned Gulzar Hussain.

Meanwhile, Chirang SP Ranjan Bhuyan said, �Since it is a case of physical assault, we will take action according to the law.�
