Three students of an engineering college in Hamirpur district of Himachal Pradesh were arrested Thursday for ragging, police said.
Avinash Chaudhary, Ankush Kumar and Abhinav Thakur, all students of National Institute of Technology, ragged eight students of the first year, Superintendent of Police Kuldeep Sharma told IANS.
"The case was registered Wednesday evening on the complaint of the institute's registrar," he added.
The hill state was in news last year when a Dharamsala court held four senior medical students guilty and sentenced them to four years' rigorous imprisonment in the Aman Kachru ragging-to-death case.
Aman, 19, who was in the Rajendra Prasad Medical College and Hospital in Tanda in Kangra district since 2007, died March 8, 2009, after he was ragged by the four drunk seniors.
