No respite from ragging: Seniors thrashed student at Law institute

 Indore: A first year law student of Indore Institute of Law (IIL) was allegedly ragged in the college campus and outside by his seniors and a classmate over a personal argument last week. Rewat Singh Raghuwanshi, a first semester student, was allegedly beaten up with baseball sticks by his two seniors of seventh semester- Yashraj Tiwari and Zaid Menon- with his classmate Abhijeet Yadav, who is son of a high court judge. 

Student leader Varsha Sharma, who led a protest against the college management for negligence in the case, told DNA that Rewat was beaten up by the seniors on December 16, two days after he had a verbal fight with Abhijeet. "Abhijeet has a good rapport with seniors in the college.

It was under his influence that the senior boys beat Rewat and also took off his gold ring. Next day, he was beaten up with baseball sticks. He suffered bruises on his back," said Varsha. Rewat immediately rushed to Tukoganj police station on December 16 after he was thrashed by Yashraj and Zaid. He was taken for a medical checkup by the police.

 Police confirmed that Rewat's friend Sushant Kohli lodged a complaint. An FIR has been filed against the two senior students. Student leaders including Varsha and ABVP member Vijay Mulchandi have reported the matter to the college management and the anti ragging committee of DAVV.

 Another ragging case of student Abhishek Shukla of the same institute IIL had come up last month and the management did not take any action on the same.
