JAIPUR: The Kanota police have finally lodged an FIR against some senior students of Apollo College of Veterinary Medicine for alleged ragging of
a junior – Prateek Bagi. The police are searching for the students who seem to have disappeared since Friday.
Prateek Bagi, a first year student of Apollo College of Veterinary Medicine, was being harassed by some of his seniors ever since he joined the college. His hairs were allegedly cut off and he was forced to move around naked on the college campus. The seniors thrashed him many times as well. Prateek had to quit his hostel room when neither police nor the college administration paid heed to his problem. His parents had to come to Jaipur twice for their son’s rescue, but to no avail.
"The parents of Prateek Bagi approached us on Friday night and we have lodged an FIR against three senior students under Sections 341, 323, 355 and 327 of IPC. We are on the look out for them and will arrest them soon," said Heera Lal, SHO of the Kanota police station.
"We had met the college administration, but received cold response. Now, we hope that the police will take an appropriate action in this regard, so that my son can study peacefully," said Parteek's father, Satish Bagi.
