Physically challenged student brutally ragged

Six students have been taken into custody in connection with the alleged ragging of 23-year-old hearing and speech impaired Nandakishore of Sree Rama Polytechnic last week, police said on Monday.

The victim, who was a first year student of the college, was hospitalised after the incident.
In his statement to the police, Nandakishore alleged that his hostel mates tried to forcibly strip him and he was roughed up when he resisted.

Hailing from a poor family, Nandakishore had gained admission into the college under the physically challenged quota. He was ragged by his seniors in the hostel on the very first day of his college on Wednesday last.

His mother came to know about the torture her son had undergone when she went to visit him on Friday last. She immediately complained to the hostel staff about the incident. The principal of the college was soon informed of the matter and the youth was sent home.
He was taken to the hospital yesterday after he complained of severe body pain, police said.
