May 20, 2009: Another case of ragging has come to light in Himachal Pradesh where a medical college student was allegedly beaten by a senior for not saluting him.
Ashish Sharma, first year student of Solan Homeopathy College, was allegedly beaten with a rod by his final year senior Yogesh Sahdev for not saluting him.
On May 17, Yogesh got angry with Ashish after the junior did not salute him and later bruised the victim along with his relatives.
A police case has been filed against Yogesh in connection. The college administration has also taken action against the senior student and suspended him for a month.
