Two activists of the NSUI, the students' wing of the Congress, were arrested on Saturday for allegedly assaulting state's policemen in Assam's Nagaon district, police said.

The incident took place in Morikalong outpost on Friday evening when police personnel seized a scooter from one of the National Students' Union of India (NSUI) members for riding it without requisite documents, a senior officer said.

"When the policemen brought the scooter to the outpost, some youths barged into the compound and assaulted the personnel, who then resorted to lathi-charge to bring the situation under control," he said.

Police have arrested two persons involved in the incident and are on a look-out to catch the others, the officer added. (PTI)
