BAMS student suspended for ragging in Kurukshetra

KURUKSHETRA: The management of Sri Krishna Ayurvedic College on Monday placed a senior BAMS student for allegedly forcing juniors to dance after disrobing themselves in the hostel. Identified as Chetan Yadav, a resident of Mahendergarh district, the student has been barred from attending the classes.

The college authorities are in the process of identifying others who accompanied Chetan during the Saturday night incident, sources said. Eight juniors -- Ravinder Saini, Sumit Saini, Amit, Gaurav, Rajguru, Mukteshwar, Pankaj and Dinesh -- had lodged a complaint against Chetan before the college authorities. According to complainant students, Chetan had managed to escape from the hostel before police could reach the hostel on getting a call in the anti-ragging cell.

 "We had a called up anti-ragging cell of police when seniors started troubling us. Police did come, but he managed to escape from the hostel,'' an aggrieved student said. College principal V V Chhikara remained inaccessible for media. Hostel warden Surender Sehrawat however confirmed the suspension of Chetan Yadav. "The principal is out of station. We can only say that the college has suspended a student, against whom a ragging complaint was received,'' said Sehrawat.

He, however, expressed inability to comment further. Kuruksehtra SP Rakesh Arya confirmed the incident, but maintained that police have not got any complaint so far. "Our SHO had visited the spot. No case was registered as neither the victim students nor the college authorities lodged any formal complaint against anybody regarding the incident,'' said Arya.
