Seniors rag student, fracture his knee

New Delhi: Jan 4, 2013 DH News Service

Victim needed three months to recover

A first-year student has suffered a fracture and other injuries after being allegedly ragged by his seniors at School of Planning and Architecture at IP Estate. Police registered a case last week.

Naveen Kujur, 22, a native of Ranchi, is pursuing Bachelor of Architecture (BArch). He told police that he along with his classmates was called by around half a dozen second year students on their Taimoor Nagar hostel’s terrace for an introduction meet.

“Five second-year students — Abhishek Kumar, Deepak Kumar, Amrit Tripathi, Muddassir Iqbal and Vansi Krishna Bukka — were already present among others. After the introduction, they began to manhandle us and started beating,” Naveen said in his statement.


“They put bricks on my spine and directed me to do push-ups. When I failed in doing so, they hurled abuses at me and again put bricks on my hands, asking me to lift them till the count of 100,” he added.

He said they were beaten up and seniors threatened not to support them in future if their decision was disobeyed.

“Following the torture, I collapsed on the floor and sustained many injuries with scratches on my body. In immense pain, next day I telephoned my father who asked me to come home as soon as possible,” Naveen said.

“I reached there and narrated the ordeal to my father who decided to file a complaint before the college,” he said.

Victim was later taken for medical checkup where doctors said his left knee had got fractured and at least needed three months of bed rest for recovery. Later, he was taken to Christian Medical College and Hospital in Tamil Nadu.

“After Naveen came home, I sent many letters to the college but recieved no reply after which I had to approach police in this regard. Following the incident, my son is living in fear and depression. He refuses to go to college,” his father David said.

He also said they sent a legal notice to the college in November 2012, seeking appropriate action against the culprits and a compensation of Rs 50 lakh for harassment and medical expenses.

Police said they have registered a case and further investigation is underway.
