Holkar College principal Dr SL Garg was also present with the police during inspection.

"We unlocked the rooms to check if any student was locked inside as it was mentioned in the complaint message. But it was all fine. Students also denied of any such incident which allegedly took place on the weekend," he said. The police have confirmed that the names of all the 18 students including the senior and junior students who were allegedly a part of ragging mentioned in the SMS are the residents of the same hostel.

"We are trying to track the person who sent the complaint message to Dr Garg. Things will be clearer when the culprit is tracked," said Yadav.
