Somehow, one of them strayed to the Commonwealth Hall, he was beaten up and his phone taken away.
The beaten Viking is said to have returned to his hall of residence to report the incident. His colleagues then followed him to the Commonwealth Hall and a fight ensued.
“Besides burning the car, they came to fight, destroyed a lot of things and took away one of statues at the Sarbah Hall,” our source said.
Reports say, it took the timely intervention of the Police to quell the riot.
