Boy given shocks during ragging

CHANDRAPUR (Maharashtra): A 16-year-old college student, Abhijit Narange, was tortured in the name of ragging by his seniors in Hyderabad, with electric shocks given to him after a severe round of thrashing. He was brought to Chandrapur, his native place, and admitted to Civil Hospital ICU on Wednesday.

A police complaint has been lodged against 11 students by Abhijit’s parents. Abhijit joined the reputed Narayana Junior College in Hyderabad last year. On the night of March 20, more than 10 of his college mates locked Abhijit in his room and ragged him for around three hours.

‘‘They were angry with me because I avoided them for their bad habits,’’ said Abhijit said. They even recorded his torture on a mobile camera and threatened Abhijit that they would upload it on a social networking site and humiliate him.
