Ten students of an engineering college in Orissa's Puri district were arrested on Thursday for assaulting their juniors, police said.

The fourth year students of Ghanashyam Hemalata Institute of Technology and Management on the Puri-Konark marine drive, some 70 km from here, allegedly attacked a group of third year students on Wednesday for not obeying their orders.

"We have arrested 10 fourth year engineering students for assaulting their juniors," Prasanta Kumar, inspector in charge of Gop police station, told IANS on phone.

The junior students alleged that the seniors forcibly entered their hostel, locked them in a room and beat them up, leaving at least eight injured.
