PG student subjected to ragging at MAMC

A first year postgraduate student at Maulana Azad Medical College, the teaching wing of Lok Nayak Hospital, was allegedly ragged in the hostel premises by a group of seniors on Sunday night. The 23-year-old student specialising in medicine had lodged a complaint with the dean as well as the Delhi Police on Monday, alleging "misbehaviour/ragging" by a group of five seniors from the department.
The Dean Dr AK Agarwal has constituted anti-ragging committee of three members comprising Dr Veena Choudhary, Dr Swaraj Batra and Dr Richa Diwan to look into the incident.

"It was brought to our notice on Monday. We formed a fact finding committee the same day and on Tuesday after they submitted a report, we forwarded it to the apex committee. The next course of action will depend on the report that is expected to be submitted by this week," said Dr Agarwal.
