A 22-year-old Kashmiri student of a reputed private institute in Ghaziabad was allegedly beaten up by a group of seniors when he screamed after suffering an electric shock in the hostel's washroom.
 
According to police, the incident took place late on Tuesday night when Omar, who is pursuing BCA course from a private institute situated on National Highway 58 near Duhai area, was taking bath in the hostel washroom.

The officer also said police have recorded the statements of Kashmiri student and accused senior students.
 
Meanwhile, the institute has constituted a 12-member committee to investigate the matter.

The Institute management said that if any student is found guilty, strict action would be taken in this regard.
