Candle rally at Tezpur varsity

The Tezpur Central University students took out a candle march on Sunday evening in protest against the rape of a 12-year-old girl in Margherita.

Nearly 300 students of the varsity participated in the  silent march protest demanding exemplary punishment of the Buddhist monk.
