HYDERABAD: A junior allegedly was made to take off his shirt and beaten up by his seniors in one of the hostel in the JNTU campus. A case has been registered by the police against two senior students.
The two second year students of engineering — Sai Surya Teja and Nirbhay — allegedly beat up the victim Raghavendra, a first year student, for failing to complete an assignment given by them. Raghavendra is a civil engineering student and stays at Kinnera hostel at JNTU.
According to DCP Madhapur Vishwa Prasad, the incident took place on November 28.

When the issue was brought to light, the JNTU anti-ragging committee conducted a probe and will take action against the two accused,” said Vishwa Prasad.
A case has been registered against Sai and Nirbhay under section 4 (clause 1) of the Telangana Prohibition of Ragging Act (1987) and notices have been served to them.
