Ragging complaint against P. C. Chandra School of Business, Kolkata

Submitted by editor on May 9, 2009 - 14:36

All the juniors were subjected to harsh ragging by seniors. The principal offenders are Bitopan Borah (Roll No.: 720824005), Joydev Shah (720824012), Debanuj Borah (720824008), Subhankar Pal (810824005). Juniors were often asked to strip their clothes and then lighted cigars were thrown on their bare bodies. The four seniors mentioned above often landed in girl’s hostel (near 1A market, salt lake) in inebriated state. Raja Nandy was punched in the eye by Joydev Shaw. Some juniors including Abhijit Das, was hit and poked with iron sticks in their private areas.

Other forms of Ragging going on at PCCSB are:
• Juniors were asked and made to answer vulgar questions.
• Juniors were forced to drink country liquor.
• Juniors were coerced to do acts with sexual overtones.
• Juniors were forced to look at pornographic movies & pictures.

Complaining to college authorities about these perverted acts was in vain, and they turned a deaf ear to our complaints. The then Administrative officer Mr. Gautam Dan & Admission officer Mr. Jitendra Gadhvi, threatened juniors not to disclose anything about the ragging to outsiders, including PTU officials.

Mr. S. Banik, Director, PCCSB mentioned that all PTU officials are corrupt, so there is no point raising the issue to PTU. Mr. S. Banik even commented to our parents that he has paid around Rs 1,00,000/- in cash to Mr. Gautam Banerjee, Regional Head, PTU for marketing purposes of UCPL Group.

Later, we came to know that PCCSB takes donation (around Rs 50,000/-) from the rich students who involve themselves in ragging. So the college is not in a position to take action against offenders.

We have lost one academic year and have paid Rs 74,000/- (Rs 20,000 + Rs 54,000/-) as fees. We have made subsequent requests to the present Administrative officer, Mr Biswajit Sen to refund a portion of our course fees, but without any response.

PCCSB is bringing disgrace to the esteemed PTU. Kindly take appropriate action from your end against the offenders mentioned in this letter and also against PCCSB authorities, according to the National Anti-Ragging Act, to stop recurrence of such incidents in future.

If needed after proper investigation, consider disaffiliating P. C. Chandra School of Business [LC : 824] for failing to curb ragging and non-compliance to university rules and regulations.
