October 1st, 2009

LUCKNOW - Five senior students of the law department in Chaudhary Charan Singh University (CCSU) in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut district allegedly ragged and beat up a fresher at gunpoint, following which he had to be taken to a hospital, police said Thursday.

The ragging took place Wednesday on the campus, where the senior students forced Dev Singh Bhadana to stand on a chair and perform objectionable acts. When Bhadana protested, the seniors beat him black and blue after holding him at gunpoint, police said.

“Acting on a complaint registered by Bhadana’s classmates, we will soon detain the five students to inquire into the matter,” police inspector R.B. Kaul told IANS on phone.

“Stern action would be taken against all those involved in the incident. We will also question the faculty members of the varsity,” he added.

According to police, Bhadana, who is being treated at a private hospital in Meerut, is now out of danger.

Such senior students should be sent to jail at least for 5 years.
I feel ashamed to call myself as an Indian, where all these nonsense are very common, because there is no 'Reward & Punishment'system in our country. In our country, many youngsters are killed in the name of ragging.
Enough is enough, our country should amend our 'LAW' system and it should be treated as non-bailable punishment.
