According to police, the women, identified as Tharmila Jajo and Chonmila, were beaten up by a group of men, who were in their late 20s.
The women in their complaint said that one of the assaulters had tied the leash of his dog to Chonmila’s boots. She panicked and in a bid to get rid of the dog she started kicking the animal.
Seeing this, the men started beating her up. When her friend Jajo tried to intervene, she too was allegedly thrashed by the men who made racists comments against them, police said.

The case was registered only the next day after leaders of some Northeast outfits intervened.
