Jhajjar: In a ragging incident reported from the World College of Medical Sciences and Research in Jhajjar, six MBBS students were expelled for three months after a junior complained of ragging from seniors, which resulted in injuries.
The complainant, a second-year MBBS student from Faridabad, claimed that on the night of March 1 and 2, six seniors hit him with an iron rod and assaulted his friends.
This incident took place in front of the hostel warden and a guard. The senior students were in a drunken state.
He stated, “After we spoke out against the ragging, my friends were assaulted by seniors. My head was stitched up six times. When the incident occurred at midnight, the senior students were intoxicated. They barged into my room and thrashed me for opposing ragging.” In addition, he told Tribune India, “A hostel warden also supported the seniors instead of helping us.”
Also, the complainant’s brother also claimed that the college authorities had previously received a complaint about ragging but had taken no action. According to the TOI, the police registered the case under Sections 147 (rioting), 149 (every member of unlawful assembly guilty of the offence committed in prosecution of a common object), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC.
The college dean, Dr.JC Passey, told HT that four of the six accused students had been expelled for three months and two for 45 days. Suraj Bhan, SHO of the Jhajjar police station, stated that the six students and the hostel warden had been arrested and that the case is being investigated.
