WARANGAL: The anti-ragging committee of Kakatiya Medical College (KMC) will convene a crucial meeting on Tuesday to decide the fate of the senior students for their alleged involvement in ragging and physically assaulting a junior student.
The meeting would be headed by KMC principal Divvela Mohandas, who invited the parents of the seven students to discuss the matter. On September 14, senior students at the KMC brutally attacked a junior student identified as Manohar, who hails from Rajasthan. Manohar sustained severe injuries in the attack and he complained to Mattewada Police Station and the Universities Grant Commission (UGC) about the attack.
Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Bonal Kishan said that the victim was pursuing a second-year MBBS course at the college. He was reportedly attacked by his seniors after he refused to fetch water for them. Irked over his behaviour, the senior students went to his room and attacked him brutally. “We have booked cases on seven students of KMC under Sections 294 (b), 323, 340 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Prohibition of Ragging Act, 1997,” the ACP said, and added that further investigations were underway into the matter.
