On June 26, a first-year student at the Dungarpur Medical College in Rajasthan said that he had been subjected to ragging by senior students who had called him to a nearby hill and forced him to perform 300 sit-ups, which had seriously injured him.

At a location close to the college on May 15, seven second-year students forced the victim to perform more than 300 sit-ups, according to Girdhari Singh, the SHO of the Dungarpur Sadar police station. According to him, this put a great deal of strain on his kidney, causing an infection and malfunction, as per PTI reports.

"Later, he had to be admitted to a private hospital in Gujarat as the pain was unbearable," he stated. In September of last year, the victim enrolled in the college.

"He had faced ragging earlier too but did not complain. The latest incident came to light after the college authority received a complaint through the online portal on June 20 following which an inquiry was conducted," the police officer told PTI.

In this case, the college administration has suspended seven students and filed a complaint against them at the Sadar Police Station under IPC sections 352 (assault or criminal force other than on grave provocation), 341 (wrongful restraint), 147 (rioting), 143 (unlawful assembly), 147 (voluntarily causing hurt), and 149 (offence committed in prosecution of common object).
