No action against ragging accused, UIET recommends suspension

In the alleged ragging case reported on Thursday in the University Institute of Engineering and Technology (UIET), the disciplinary committee is yet to decide whether the case was of ragging or not. After a student, Gaurav Chowdhary, reported that he had been ragged and assaulted by Dharmendra Bishnoi, another student of UIET, about 50 other students had also given a written complaint against him to the DSW. A disciplinary committee was formed by UIET director Renu Vig to look into the matter.

After the committee’s meeting on Friday, Vig said that only second-year students, who had signed the complaint, turned up for verification. She said, “Ragging is usually done against freshers. Therefore, an anti-ragging action cannot be taken against Dharmendra.” However, she added that Dharmendra’s actions were bullish towards other students and a written recommendation had been sent to the DSW, stating that he should be suspended from attending classes.

The DSW, however, said that he had not received any written intimation yet. Dharmendra, who was arrested on Thursday, was produced before the SDM (Central) and released on bail.
