Ragging: 2 boys leave Bishop Cotton's

The two students, Akashdeep Turna and Avtar Singh, quit the school on Monday after their families lodged a complaint with the school authorities that their wards were bullied and physically assaulted by seniors, sources in the school said on Friday.

Kuldeep Turna, father of Akashdeep, who is an NRI settled in the UK, alleged that seniors used to send juniors to fetch food for them from hotels at night and did not allow juniors to use toilet after 11 pm.

He further alleged that juniors were also beaten with rods and hockey sticks if they did not listen to them.

When contacted, the school headmaster Christopher Robinson admitted receiving the complaint from the families of the two boys and said that the school’s house master has given him a report on the alleged incident. “The report has come and I am studying it,” he said.

Annoyed over the incident, Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal has sought a report from the Shimla district administration on the matter.
