Pune In an alleged case of ragging at the Indian Institute of Cost and Management Studies and Research (IndSearch), Law College Road, on Saturday suspended a first year MBA (marketing) student. The student allegedly misbehaved with a second year MBA (HR) student on April 2 . According to a press note issued by the director of IndSearch Dr Ashok Joshi, on April 2, the first year student took the second year student to a hill at the backside of MIT College and asked him to remove his clothes. “The second year student informed about the incident to associate dean of post-graduate programme N M Vechalekar. The student alleged that he was dropped back to the college scantily clad,” said the press note. The institute took immediate action and constituted an enquiry committee. The incident has also been conveyed to the parents of both the students. The committee found the first year student prima facie guilty and suspended him.
“The committee, however, also decided to make an enquiry of the complainant too to take appropriate action," said the press note. The incident has been reported to the Deccan Gymkhana police station by the institute.
