Students leave hostel alleging ragging by seniors

 SIRSA: Alleging ragging by seniors, 37 Class X students of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV), Odhan in the district, moved out of their hostels on Monday night. As they staged a protest, alleging that they were ragged by students of Class XII, police have reached the school and begun a probe.

 Taking action against the erring students, the school principal suspended nine students for 15 days from both classes. The Class X students alleged that their seniors from class XII called them to their rooms and tortured them. They further alleged that they informed the principal, but no action was taken against the seniors.

 Refusing to go back to the hostel, they staged a protest against school authorities at the grain market in Odhan. JNV principal G K Mishra said, "As I learned about the incident, I informed police, asking them to look for the missing students. However, the protest by students Class X is not justified. I will look into their complaint and take action against the seniors, if found guilty." Karnal: A student, Manav, from DAV College, was seriously injured when some youths from Jail Colony here attacked him with a sharp weapon at the bus terminus on Tuesday.

 According to police, Manav and his friend were attacked when they were about to take a bus to go home. Some passersby spotted Manav lying in a pool of blood and rushed him to the trauma centre of Kalpana Chawla Medical College and Hospital from where he was shifted to a private hospital. His condition is stated to be critical. Police have registered a case against the alleged attacker, Vicky, and two others.
