Ragging sparks violent clash in college, 2 injured

COIMBATORE: In a violent clash between B Com and Bachelor of Business Management (BBM) students at the campus of SNR and Sons College in Peelamedu, two students sustained severe injuries on Friday. An FIR has been registered against 14 BBM students and a hunt is on for them.

D Tamil Selvan of Tirupur, 20, a B Com final-year student, was admitted to the Coimbatore Medical College Hospital with stab injuries on his left torso. Another student, Goutham Belli of Ooty, a final-year B Com graduate, sustained minor injuries.

The feud between BBM and B Com students began on July 13 when a group of second year BBM students questioned the freshers on details regarding their hometown, name, etc. Third-year B Com students, who came to the spot, warned the BBM students against the questioning, claiming it amounted to ragging.
