A first year nursing student of a private college here received multiple injuries after he was ragged by his seniors outside the campus for refusing to collect money from strangers by touching their feet, police said on Thursday.

Mayank Kumar, a student of the G.S.R.M Memorial Degree College, was assaulted by four senior students of the institute Wednesday in the Sarojini Nagar town.

A police complaint was filed late Wednesday evening by Kumar against the four third year nursing students.

"We have already detained one of the students who assaulted Mayank Kumar. The student is out of danger. In assistance with the college authorities, we have initiated an enquiry," police inspector A.K. Dwivedi said here.

In the complaint, Kumar has alleged that his seniors - Gyan Prakash, Rahul Pandey, Deepak and Amresh - forced him to stop outside the campus and later directed him to collect money from the passers-by by touching their feet.

As Kumar refused, they started beating him on the road. Later, Kumar was taken to a hospital by some locals.

College chairman Manoj Kumar said: "Stern action would be taken against the senior students, who have been accused of assaulting Mayank Kumar."
