Guntur, August 24: The scourge of ragging raised its ugly head again in the city, when four final year degree students of Hindu College charged with ragging on Thursday by the Lalapet police.
Based on a complaint by the first year students of B.A, hailing from Tadikonda and the college management, the Lalapet police charged the four boys with ragging. The students were arrested and later produced in the fourth additional magistrate court. According to Lalapet Sub Inspector M. Hanumantha Rao, the four final year students, including one from B.Com, had been accused of forcing freshers to dance on the college premises and do other uncomfortable things, much against their will. Based on a complaint from the students, the police came to the college on Thursday. They paraded the students and let the first years identify the accused.
Later, the accused were taken into custody.
