Three students of the National Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) have been booked for ragging, thrashing and robbing another student. Mahesh Tanwar, 21, a second year dental student, was beaten up on Wednesday by Navneet Singh, a third year dental student, Shobhit Kashwa, fourth year dental student and Saurabh Srivastava, fourth year medical student, at the institute located at Chandwaji on the Delhi-Jaipur highway.
“The students forcibly took Rs400 and a gold chain from Tanwar,” said a police officer. Tanwar’s father, Rajendra Singh Tanwar, had filed the complaint late on Wednesday evening, said Hari Ram Kumawat, station house officer of Chandwaji police station. According to the complaint, around 5 pm on Wednesday, the accused students had gone to Tanwar’s room at the E Block hostel of NIMS and demanded money to buy liquor.
When Tanwar refused to pay them, they stripped him and began beating him up with a leather belt, said Kumawat.
“Since Kashwa was a final year student, no hosteller dared to interrupt. Finally they robbed him.” A medical test has been conducted on Tanwar at the Chandwa Ji Rajkiya Prathmik Swasthya Kendra. The NIMS authorities were unavailable for comment.
Last month, 14 students of Vivekananda Institute of Technology (VIT), Jagatpura, were booked for ragging. Another incident of ragging was reported from Gyan Vihar College last month.
