The body of an engineering student of the Assam Engineering College (AEC) was found floating in a pond inside the college campus triggering suspicion of ragging.
Madhurjya Barukiyal, who hailed from Kamargaon in Golaghat, had gone to bath in the pond after playing a game of football last evening.
His body was later recovered from the pond.
Barukiyal had joined the college only last week.
His body was sent for postmortem at the Guwahati Medical College and later taken to his hometown.
Family members of the boy claimed that it was a case of ragging and demanded a proper investigation into the incident.
