There is a lot f complaint that we see and face in the 21st century. Most of the complaints that the students bring up are complaints against ragging. Ragging is a social crime and definitely punishable under the law of the supreme court of India. The rate on ragging incidents across the country has been growing at an alarming rate.
The education board of the country needs to take stern measures against violators of the rules and regulations. If the problem is not taken seriously then it could be dangerous in the coming years. It becomes tough for the junior students to adjust to the college environment when there is too much of ragging going on. The teachers and the college authorities need to step up to the act and deal with it seriously. Ragging should be nipped of in the bud for people to stay safe.
Recently at the Regional Institute of Education [RIE] 14 students were arrested by the police for violence in the campus. The students were released on bail the next morning. Police are speculating that it was a clash between two groups of students that led to this arrest. Some of them were from 1st year and some were from senior batches.
The college authorities said that some of the senior students were objected by the fact that the first year students were having dinner with them on the same table. The college does not see this as an act of ragging. However the college will look into the matter. This incident occurred at the Homi Bhaba hostel. The seniors started the fight. The students have been given formal warning and things are back to normal now.
The incident started when Sushil Prasad, a first year student was hit on the head by a hovering tray that was hurled at him by senior. They were having dinner on the same table and the seniors did not like the fact. The clash broke out between the two groups and police had to be called into the college premises in order to get the situation under control.
The injured student was immediately rushed to the hospital. The other students involved in the brawl were taken into custody by the police for the night. However the students were released on bail the next morning. The things were restored to normal and the students were warned seriously. If anyone was found guilty strict action would be taken against them.
The college authorities made it very clear that another incident like this will force the authorities to expel the students from college. They also sent a letter to the parents of the students who were involved regarding this matter. This kind of behaviour was completely uncalled for. The institution has a strict policy against ragging and if any student violates the rules then the college will not hesitate to throw them out. These cases should be dealt with immediate action to avoid further clashes.
