A first-year medical student was allegedly ragged by second and third-year students at Chamarajanagar Medical College hostel. A complaint was lodged in this regard with Chamarajanagar Rural Police station.
The incident occurred around three days ago. However, the police have not filed an FIR. The police, who inquired seven students involved in the ragging incident, have taken a recognizance letter (muchalike patra) from them.
The dean of the college has also warned the students.
Additional Superintendent of Police Anitha B Haddannavar visited the college and interacted with first and second-year students. The college administration board has summoned the parents of all the seven students and decided to give a strict warning to the students.
The first-year student is a native of Tumakuru.
It is alleged that the seniors came to his hostel room, slapped him, forced him to remove his clothes and harassed him.
The affected student had called his parents and informed them about the ragging. He also wanted to leave the college because of this. The student's father, who came to Chamarajanagar, lodged a complaint with the Dean and also at the police station.
The police had summoned the students on Sunday night and inquired them.
