'Ragging' in wake of donation collection for Ganesh Chaturthi

 INDORE: Students of Shri Govindram Seksaria Institute of Technology and Science ( SGSITS) have allegedly registered complaints of bullying by their senior in hostel campus.

 The students alleged that seniors are forcing them to indulge into donation collection for Ganesh Chathurthi. Though the issue had surfaced on Monday too, the authorities had claimed to pacify the protests, which was actually was not.

 On Tuesday night, institute authorities again denied permission for collection of donation for the festival, which in turn resulted in ruckus on the campus for nearly four hours.

 On Tuesday, Warden Rakesh Saxena informed the hostellers that the institute authorities were against collection of donations for Ganesh Chaturthi and it should be stopped immediately.

 The reason behind it was stated to be complaints of bullying of second year students by students of third year. Some parents reportedly informed the institute authorities that senior students had allegedly pressed their wards into the task of donation collection.

 Moved by the complaints of parents, the institute authorities asked the hostellers not to collect donations.

 To this, the students created chaos on the campus on Tuesday night.
