Three engg students suspended for ragging

JAIPUR: Three engineering students of a private university were suspended on charges of ragging their juniors on Friday.They have been suspended for 10 days and debarred from appearing in the semester exam following an FIR filed by two juniors.

Two diploma students Shiv Dayal Chaudhary and Yogesh Sharma filed a police complaint against one Rather Singh Rathore and three others for physically assaulting them on the university campus on Friday.

They asked us to get a packet of cigarettes and snacks on Thursday.However,they didnt give us any money.On Friday,they again called us and asked us to get the same.When we refused,they said that they will strip us and make us dance in the academy hall, said Chaudhary.

They then started slapping us in the campus and threatened of dire consequences if we refuse to follow their instructions, the victims said.

The two soon rushed to the college proctors room but the proctor wasnt there.When seniors came to know that we went to the proctors room for making a complaint,they again beat us on the campus, said Sharma.They then went to the pro-vice-chancellors office who assured them of stringent action against the culprits.Furious by their move,the seniors again abused them.Finally,they filed a police complaint against the seniors.

Prima facie,it doesnt look to be a case of ragging,but still we are consulting the university officials to find out the exact issue, said the investigating officer. Meanwhile,the university had formed a committee to look into the matter.

It’s not a case of ragging.Its a simple dispute between two student groups, said Nirmal Panwar,vice-chancellor of the university.
