Last Updated : 14 Oct 2010 08:54:48 AM IST

HYDERABAD: Alleged ragging by senior students of a professional college at Ghatkesar led to a minor clash on the college premises with the relatives of the junior student beating up the seniors today. Police registered cases against seven seniors, including six girls, and also the college management for its failure to take stringent action against the seniors.
The incident took place in the Mother Theresa PG College at Chowdaryguda on the outskirts of the city.
The ragging took place yesterday morning when a first year MBA student Sasikala, was on her way to the college in a bus.
``Six senior girl students in the bus asked Sasikala to address them as Madam. Sasikala, however, refused to do so and instead told them that she would call them `akka’ (elder sister),’’ Ghatkesar police inspector Ch Srikanth.
Another senior boy was also involved in the ragging. They were all second year MBA students, police said.
Though the incident subsided then, the seniors caught Sasikala in the campus in the evening and picked up an argument with her.
This led to minor jostling between Sasikala and the seniors.
After reaching home, Shashikala told the incident to her parents and relatives. ``Around 10 relatives of the girl came to the college today and picked up an argument with the seniors who ragged the girl. The senior students were manhandled by Sasikala’s relatives,’’ police said.
Police intervened and pacified the two groups. Based on the complaint by Sasikala, police registered cases against seven students and the college management.
Police are yet to register cases against the relatives of Sasikala for attacking the students of the college.
