Ragging victim debarred from college hostelApril 6th, 2008 - 10:16 pm ICT by admin
Ghaziabad (Uttar Pradesh), April 6 (IANS) A first-year engineering student was barred from his college hostel in Uttar Pradesh after he filed a complaint about ragging against his senior students. The CEO of HR Institute of Engineering Technology, H.N. Kapoor, in an order served on the victim, Navin Singh, said his behaviour has brought ill-repute to the institute, and asked him to vacate the hostel room with immediate effect.
“It is very unfair. I suffered ragging at the hands of seniors and I am being punished. What did the management decide about them (seniors)? This is partial attitude of the institute,” Singh said.
Singh in his police complaint Wednesday last week named five second-year students - Rahul, Ayush, Ravi, Dheeraj and Nitish Tomar - for barging into his hostel room, beating him with iron rods, and causing him cigarette burns. The senior students allegedly said they were `ragging’ him.
