KOZHIKODE: The principal and anti-ragging committee of Sree Anjaneya Institute of Dental Sciences, Modakkallur, Atholi, will have to face the music for allegedly trying to hush up a ragging case.
According to a High Court order issued by Justice B Kemal Pasha, the principal and those associated with the anti-ragging committee of the college were also liable to be proceeded against. The investigating officer has been given a month’s time to file a statement.
On October 7, 2015, first year BDS student Abhinav C K was subjected to ragging by six senior students, two days after the orientation programme organised by the college for the freshers.
Abhinav discontinued his studies after the incident.
Though the college administration allegedly tried to hush up the matter, Abhinav’s father Praveen Kumar, an NRI, registered a complaint with the police. Following this the college suspended the six senior students. However, the suspension was withdrawn a week later. A case was registered by the police under IPC 308 and since the principal did not complain about ragging in the college, ragging charges could not be filed.
