A complaint of ragging was lodged by a student of Prestige Institute of Engineering Management and Research with Anti-Ragging Helpline on Tuesday. As per information, the complainant reportedly claimed that he and some other students were beaten by senior students. Sources said a fight broke out between second and third year students over seating arrangements at library.
The college administration called junior and senior students who indulged in fight and struck a compromise between them. However, later one of the junior students filed complaint with Anti-Ragging Helpline which in turn directed college to get the matter probed. College director Manoj Kumar Deshpande stated that he had received an email from Anti-Ragging Helpline regarding complaint of ragging.
“We have forwarded the complaint to anti-ragging committee of college. The committee will inquiry into the matter and submit its report. The report will be forwarded to Anti-Ragging Helpline,” he added. Deshpande said college has “zero tolerance” policy in ragging cases.
