Four BHU students held for ragging

The four culprits have been arrested under the anti-ragging law, Varanasi Superintendent of Police Vijai Bhushan said. The provisions under the SC/ST Act could also be slapped on the accused, he added.

This is the third incident of ragging in BHU in the past two months. Fifteen students are facing charges of ragging in two incidents that occurred on July 29 and August 9 respectively.

Two of the alleged culprits are B Tech third year students while two others are B Tech first year students. The accused and the victim are from Andhra Pradesh.
Bhushan said the accused, identified as S Harsha, P  Kishore Kumar, K Raja and Guruprasad B, forcibly took the victim to a city-based restaurant on Monday evening and asked him to take off his cloths and dance like a “male strip dancer.”

They also forcibly took away the money and a mobile phone from him and allowed to go only after making a promise to pay Rs 5,000 later, police sources said. BHU chief proctor H C S  Rathore said the accused had been expelled from the hostel. The name of the victim has not been disclosed.
