Police book 3 students in ragging case

 LUCKNOW: Three students of Government Ayurvedic College, Talkatora Road were booked by the police on Thursday, for allegedly ragging their junior students. The incident was reported to local Bazarkhala police station following which a case was lodged, and Vikas Chowdhary (2006 batch), Upendra Nath (2008 batch) and Shashikant (2006 batch) have been charged under Section 5 of the Prevention of Ragging Act. The complainant of the case is Ujjwal Shivhare, a first year student of the college residing at the student hostels situated on the campus. Shivhare had alleged that he had been ragged earlier by the same, trio but he had ignored the matter.

According to police the three seniors who too happen to be hostellers, supposedly abused and teased their juniors on regular basis. On Thursday the matter took an ugly turn when they slapped Shivhare and asked him to stand on the bench for hours. Shivhare was supported by 16 more students of his batch who also told the police about the menace.

 The three seniors in their defence claimed that the incident had been overplayed and their acts were not as extreme in nature as they have been made out to be in the police complaint. Meanwhile, the police said that investigations will be carried out in the matter and if required, the students will be arrested.
