The bullying incident
After seeing the viral video of junior NCC students being brutally beaten by seniors, the police themselves visited Joshi-Bedekar College and asked the management about the matter. Concerned students were appealed to come forward, but no students have yet come forward.
A video of several students training emerged yesterday. Students training under the National Cadet Corps (NCC) were allegedly being thrashed by their seniors at Vidya Prasarak Mandal’s college in Thane.
6 students beaten up
At least six anonymous students can be seen laying on the ground in the mud and rain while their seniors beat them with sticks in the footage. Although the horrified students are shown imploring and weeping, the beatings continue.
