Two first-year students of Maharaja's College have registered FIR against a group of students following a clash on Friday. While the victims alleged the incident to be ragging, the police and the college authorities denied it.

"How can we call it ragging when all the students involved are from the same class? Rather it is a clash between two groups of students that not even happened inside the campus," said RV Singh, principal, Maharaja's College.

He said that the victims have lodged complaint with the police regarding the incident. The accused students are said to be inmates of the college's Gokhale Hostel. According to the officials at Lalkothi police station, where the complaint has been lodged, cases have been registered under section 323 and 341 of IPC.

"The victim Anil Devanda is a resident of Chaksu and had clashed with some hostellers of the same college and same class. We have registered the complaint and are carrying further investigations," said Rameshwar Dayal, sub inspector, Lalkothi police station.

According to the victim, the clash took place as the hostellers tried to teach him lessons on discipline.
