[Yahoo] Apeejay architecture student complains of ragging, torture

Friday October 12, 01:37 AM

A first year student of Apeejay School of Architecture has lodged a complaint against six seniors, alleging ragging and physical torture.

Prashant Kumar Agrahari's father Dhruv Prasad told the Hindustan Times, "My son was so terrified after the incident that he told us that he would commit suicide and will not go to college. He was getting threats from senior students who had physically tortured him. I had complained to college management on October 8. But no action was taken. On Thursday afternoon, when I called them, they said the Director was out of station and that he would take action on his return."

"Someone has to come forward against the menace of ragging. I decided to fight the menace and took my son to the police station and lodged a complaint," he said. "Though four students were physically tortured by the seniors, no one had the courage to speak up against seniors. Maybe now they too would come forward and raise their voice," said Prasad.
