Lucknow, Sep 13 (IANS) Two students of an Uttar Pradesh government university in Meerut district have been booked for physically abusing and ragging their junior on the campus, police said Tuesday. One of them has been arrested.
Sandeep Bhadana and Deepak Kumar — final year MBA students of Chaudhary Charan Singh Meerut University (CCSMU) — brutally assaulted Brijesh Ram, a first year Dalit student Monday after he refused to perform obscene acts.
‘Sandeep and Deepak assaulted the junior student with leather belts. They repeatedly punched and kicked him, following which he fainted and was rushed to a hospital,’ police inspector Mahaveer Prasad told reporters in Meerut, 450 km from Lucknow.
‘A case against Sandeep and Deepak was registered late Monday when the injured student approached us,’ he added.
While police Tuesday managed to nab Deepak, they have sought assistance from the varsity authorities to trace Sandeep.
