Dibrugarh, Nov 22: In a tragic incident, two students of Lahowal College were killed while speeding on the road at Bokul in Dibrugarh on Tuesday afternoon.

According to locals, three students on a KTM bike (AS-23-AE-3474) were coming from Athbari area towards Bokul Polytechnic Institute when the speeding bike lost control and hit a metallic road sign post on a road turn.

Two students identified as Abhijit Baruah and Ridip Chetia died on the spot while the other student Akash Deep Baruah was critically injured.

The injured student was taken to the Assam Medical College and Hospital for treatment.


All the three students were final year Higher Secondary students of Lahowal College.

“The youths were triple ridding the bike and on a high speed. They couldn’t control their bike and hit a metallic road sign post on a road turn. Two of them died on the spot and one seriously injured was taken to hospital,” said a local resident.

“Over Speeding of bikes by youngsters have been the cause of many such incidents in recent times. The traffic department should check such things but due to their negligence on the part of their duty such incidents are happening,” said another local resident.

“The college students are found riding in high-speed during the college hours. On a busy road, they are found over-speeding with their vehicle and most of the time accidents happen due to that. Every year youths die due to over-speeding and rash driving,” said Ranjit Das, a senior citizen of Dibrugarh.

On Sunday, Labanya Tanti, a 55-year-old worker of the Jalan South tea estate, died in a hit-and-run incident in Dibrugarh while five others – Junali Tanti (55), Mina Bawari (40), Monju Saikia (52), Adhir Dey (65) and Samir Goriak (5) – sustained severe injuries.
