Suicide blamed on ragging: Devender Kumar


Ragging claims student’s life in AP

Hyderabad, June 9
Unable to put up with ragging by his seniors, an engineering student committed suicide by jumping before a running train in Warangal district of Andhra Pradesh.The body of Devender Kumar, a 22-year-old MCA student of Hyderabad-based Vasavi Engineering College, was found on the railway track near Dharmaram village in Warangal district, the police said.

A suicide note recovered from Kumar's pocket said he was resorting to the extreme step as he was unable to bear the ragging by his seniors at the private college.

The student’s death came as a stark reminder of the continued ragging menace in professional colleges despite the Supreme Court’s recent directive to the state governments on curbing incidents of ragging. “There is a lack of sincerity on the part of the government to check this menace. The private managements have been routinely turning a deaf ear to complaints of ragging,” an education expert and MLC Ch Ramaiah said.

Kumar’s family members allege that the college management did not take any action on their complaint regarding ragging. . “My son used to talk about the ragging problem. We took it to the notice of the management but no action was taken,” his father Sankaraiah said.

The deceased, a native of Chopadandi village in Karimnagar district, was returning to write his semester examination in Hyderabad when the incident occurred. The police has registered a case of unnatural death and the body has been shifted to MGM Government hospital at Warangal for post mortem. Kumar’s case came close on the heels of the sensational Bapatla ragging case where 19-year-old student, Triveni, was allegedly forced to strip by her college mates. Humiliated, she tried to kill herself. She was, however, lucky to survive.

The ragging incidents continue to be reported even after the Supreme Court took a serious note of the menace and had, on May 7 last, asked all state governments to set up committees to prevent such incidents.

Bishop Cotton Allegations

Ragging in Bishop Cotton School (BCS) in Bangalore - 2 Students Leave School

New Delhi | May 22, 2009:
Two class IX students of Bishop Cotton School (BCS) in Bangalore have left the renowned education institute after complaining of ragging by seniors, prompting the state government to seek a report from the district administration on the incident.

The Two students, Akashdeep Turna and Avtar Singh, quit the school on Monday after their families lodged a complaint with the school authorities that their wards were bullied and physically assaulted by seniors, sources in the school said.

Kuldeep Turna, father of Akashdeep, who is an NRI settled in UK alleged that seniors used to send juniors to fetch food for them from hotels at night and did not allow juniors to use toilet after 11 after dark.

He further alleged that juniors were also beaten by rods and hockey sticks if they did not listen

When contacted, the school headmaster Christopher Robinson admitted receiving the complaint from the families of the two boys and said that the school's house master has given him a report on the alleged incident.

"The report has come and I am studying it," he said.

Annoyed over the incident, Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal has sought a report from the Shimla district administration on the matter.

"Immediately after hearing of the incident, the CM ordered the Shimla district administration to submit a report," sources in the CM's office said.

They said though no no time frame has been specified, the district administration has been asked to submit the report immediately.

Deputy Commissioner Shimla Amar Singh Rathore confirmed that he has been asked for a report on the entire episode, which he would submit at the earliest.

The 150 year old school is not the first from the hill state where ragging incidents have been reported.

Educational institutes in Himachal were in news after the death of Aman Kachroo, the first year MBBS student of Dr Rajendra Prasad Government Medical College in March, due to ragging.

Subsequently complaints of ragging poured in from Indira Gandhi Medical College (IGMC), Shimla, Sanawar based Lawrence school and Homeopathic college at Solan.

Alarmed by death of Kachroo, the state government introduced a stringent anti-ragging ordinance.

Seeking to take to task anybody who indulges in the menace, the CM had yesterday ordered deployment of plain clothed police in higher education institutions
