ANANTAPUR: The principal of an engineering college and three students were arrested in connection with a ragging case here on Wednesday.

While principal G Satish was arrested for failing to stop ragging activity inside his Intel Engineering College premises, the three B Tech students were taken into custody for ragging juniors.

C V Lokesh, a first year civil engineering diploma student, lodged a complaint with the principal about ragging by second year B Tech students -- K Sandeep, Srikanth and Y Shyam -- 20 days ago. But the principal did not respond. The same batch of students again resorted to ragging a few juniors including one Lokesh on July 3.

Though the juniors approached the principal, it was to no avail. It was then they brought the matter to the notice of the police. Rural inspector S Mahabub Basha told TOI that several complaints of ragging have come to their notice but the principal did not initiate any disciplinary action against the accused students.

"Cops in plainclothes were witness to ragging in the college in the last two weeks. B Tech students were seen ragging diploma students inside the college compound," he said.

Based on a complaint from Lokesh, the rural police registered cases against Satish and the three accused students. Srikanth and Sandeep were arrested on July 4 while the principal and Shyam were picked up on Wednesday.
