JAMNAGAR: A postgraduate student of MP Shah Medical College has complained to the college authorities that he was ragged brutally. According to the authorities, who refused to disclose the victim's name, the student, with his parents, approached them and complained against a group of senior students who subjected him to inhuman ragging.

The victim enrolled in the college in 2003. His ordeal began when, after MBBS, he got admission in the postgraduate course. He claimed he was regularly thrashed by his tormentors. They used to wake him up by kicking him in his groin and did not let him sleep. When he tried to protest, they threatened to kill him.

Unable to bear the torture, he quit studies and returned to Ahmedabad, his parents said. "The amount of torture my son has gone through can be gauged from the fact that he wakes up suddenly in the night and starts screaming," said the victim's father.

"The allegation of ragging is serious, and considering the Supreme Court's verdict, we've taken serious note of the incident and formed a committee to investigate the matter," said a college official.
