The suspects, Neizosetuo Kire (24) and Khrietsony├╝ Whuorie (25), were apprehended on Sunday. They have been charged under several sections of the Indian Penal Code, including 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 325 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt), 352 (assault or use of criminal force), and 302 (murder). A case has been registered at the North police station.

The incident has prompted significant public outcry.
