JAIPUR: Six students of a city-based hotel management institute were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly creating a ruckus in Bani Park police station after they were summoned there following a complaint of ragging.
According to the police, a first year student of Institute of Hotel Management (IHM), Krishna Varma, approached the police claiming that six students of second and third year were harassing him. Varma and the seniors are staying in the institute's hostel on Sikar Road in Bani Park.
"Six students — Vipin Malik, Tarun Jodh Singh, Ishan Rajoria, Dilip Chauhan, Vipin Kishore and Pratik Kumar — used to harass Varma," said Ashok Chauhan, incharge of Bani Park police station.
"They would go to his room and wake him up in the wee hours saying that he could not sleep without their permission. Then they would make him stand in unusual positions. The ragging continued for a week before the victim approached us on Monday," said Chauhan.
CO, Sadar, Bajrang Singh said that the six accused were summoned to the station. However, after reaching the station, Varma and the senior students picked up a fight in the station premises. The police then booked the six students under Section 151 of CrPC for disturbing peace.
