The victim was made to kneel down and manhandled. He was hospitalised
Two students of Mundiampakkam Government Medical College have been placed under suspension for ragging a junior student.
A police complaint has been filed in this regard.
Police said Mahesh (19) of Thirukkoilur and Mohammad Batcha (19) of Manapparai used to rag R. Deepak (17), a first-year student from Tiruppattur.
The seniors forced Deepak to do their bidding and asked him to pay them money.
When he refused to oblige, they beat him up and made him to kneel down. After he was seriously manhandled by the seniors on Saturday, Deepak got admitted to the medical college hospital.
The police booked a case by invoking Section 294 (b) (using abusive language) and 323 (causing hurt) of the IPC.
When contacted, college Dean Thenmozhi Valli said appropriate action would be initiated against the two students after getting the views of the academic council.
