Australian couple attacked in Jorhat

Once again Assam and its people have reasons to hang the heads in shame. Four drunken youths have attacked a foreign couple in Jorhat on Tuesday night forcing police to launch an operation in search of the youths.

According to information, four youths waylaid the Australian couple Brand Steter Werner and his wife Susanne Regina on the way back to the town from Kokilamukh and tried to storm into the Mercedes Benz caravan. 

The youths spoke to them in Assamese who was not understood by the foreign couple. Then the youths tried to dreg them out of the car and when failed they broke the glass by pelting stones and vanished. A local resident brought the situation under control and talked to police who shifted them to the Jorhat Circuit House.          

Policemen in Jorhat started launching an operation in search of the miscreants who attacked the couple from Poscherberg, Pregarten, off Vienna. The couple on Wednesday left for Nagaland en route to Myanmar.
