Seniors give engineering student cigarette burnsApril 5th, 2008 - 12:25 am ICT by admin
Ghaziabad, April 4 (IANS) A student of an engineering college here has filed a police complaint alleging that his five seniors in the name of ragging brutally beat him up and caused him cigarette burns. Naveen Singh had taken admission at the HR Institute of Engineering Technology on Meerut Road as a B.Tech first-year student. After his admission, he escaped ragging as he had fever.
But senior students were looking for an opportunity to rag him. Five of them barged into his room at the hostel, armed with iron rods. After locking the room from inside, the seniors started beating him as a punishment for escaping them earlier. They then tattooed Naveen with burning cigarettes.
When he called up the institute chairman, he said he could not help as he was out of station. In the police complaint, Naveen Singh named his five tormentors. The police have not registered the case so far.
Upset at the police station officer, Naveen lodged a complaint with the Senior Superintendent of Police, Ghaziabad.
But no action was initiated until Friday night.
