Indore, Sep 8 (IANS) At least three students of Holkar Science College here have been booked for allegedly ragging first year students, police said Tuesday. The victims claimed that they were subjected to ragging by the seniors on Sep 2.

Demanding stern action against the accused, ABVP leader Gaurav Randive threatened to launch an agitation against the college if action was not taken against the accused in the next 24 hours.
