Chennai: Two Engineering students hailing from Assam were murdered by their friends in two different incidents in Tamil Nadu during liquor parties thrown by them on the occasion of Deepavali Festival, which turned bloody.

A day after a second-year Mechanical Engineering student from Assam, studying in Annamalai University in Chidambaram was murdered by his classmate on Tuesday, a fourth year Computer Science student of Hindustan Engineering College, also from Assam, was murdered by a fellow student at Padur, near here yesterday.

The incidents have sent shock waves as in both the cases, the murderers were under the influence of liquor and drugs.

In Chidambaram incident, Dhruba Jyoti Dutta (18), a second year student, was hit on his head with a log by his classmates after the party hosted by him turned bloody.

Dutta, who shared a rented house with five students, hosted the party and invited two of his classmates, Rakesh Roshan and Ankit Kumar, both hailing from Bihar.

In the late-night party, on October 24, the students consumed liquor and drugs to get high. Soon, they lost control of themselves and turned quarrelsome, police said. Trouble broke out when Dutta forced Roshan and Kumar to leave the room, after Roshan made derogatory remarks against Dutta’s girlfriends, hailing from Assam. (UNI)
