A couple of senior students of the TTD-run Sri Venkateswara Oriental College, along with some local people, beat one of their juniors at Tirupati railway station after dragging him of a train on Monday night.

The incident came to light on Tuesday with the railway police registering cases against the culprits.

Railway SI T Bhaskara Babu said BA first year student Shankar, from Nallamada in Anatapur district, boarded the Tirupati- Guntakal passenger train on platform no 4 on Monday night at around 10:30 pm. Final year students Mahadevan and Bhaskar, some other students of the college and some locals dragged Shankar out of the train and beat him up. Shankar lost a couple of teeth in the incident.

The accused then fled from the spot. Shankar informed his friends about the incident and lodged a complaint with the railway police.

Shankar’s friends Anil Kumar, Nagesh Reddy, Chinnappa Reddy and others alleged that their seniors come drunk and harass them in hostels during night. Unable to put up with it, some of us resisted them and they developed grudge against us, they said.

Meanwhile, college authorities said they had nothing to do with the incident, as it happened outside their premises. They also said no ragging is taking place on the campus.

Student organisation Nava Samaja Federation president N Nagesh demanded that the railway police arrest the culprits. Meanwhile, the railway police arrested two of the accused and are on look out for others.
