The boy, Ravindra Nawalia, brought this predicament upon himself reportedly when he refused to disrobe.
The first year student was coming out of the college when he was accosted by six persons, including two outsiders, at the gate. When he refused to remove his cloths, the miscreants first beat him and then stabbed him.
The police authorities in Jhalawar said a case has been registered under Sections 304, 307 of the Indian Penal Code and under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. Four of the accused have been taken into custody while two are still missing.
