Shillong: Three students hailing from Manipur and studying at the North Eastern Hill University here were arrested for assaulting and molesting a tea stall worker in the university campus, the police said.
They were arrested, but were later released after they secured anticipatory bail from a local court, they said.
East Khasi Hills district SP M Kharkrang said the trio, who were involved in the crime on February 27, had absconded but surrendered at Mawlai PS with an interim pre-arrest bail from the court.
The accused have been identified as Ringlan Ngashangva, Saramwung Raikhan and Aaron Lungleng, all hailing from Ukhrul district of Manipur.
"All of them were arrested and later released on bail as per directions of the court," the SP said.
