Shimla, Aug 5 (IANS) Three students of an engineering college in Himachal Pradesh arrested for ragging newcomers were sent to judicial custody for three days by a local court, police said.

The three students of National Institute of Technology in Hamirpur, were arrested for ragging eight first-year students in the hostel, Superintendent of Police Kuldeep Sharma told IANS.

He said the accused were in first year as they failed in last year’s examination. The case was registered Wednesday evening on the complaint of the institute’s registrar.

The hill state was in news last year when a Dharamsala court held four senior medical students guilty and sentenced them to four years’ rigorous imprisonment in the Aman Kachru ragging-to-death case.

Aman, 19, who was in the Rajendra Prasad Medical College and Hospital in Tanda in Kangra district since 2007, died March 8, 2009, after he was ragged by four drunk seniors.
