Medical Student Admitted To Hospital After Ragging
A girl medical student from Visva Bharati University was so traumatised after ragging by her seniors that she had to be admitted to hospital.

The girl, a first year student of Sangeet Bhawan and a resident of Ananda Sadan hostel was ragged by three to four seniors on July two at the hostel, according to a complaint lodged by her local guardian with the university authorities yesterday.

Confirming the incident, University Registrar S K Sarkar told PTI that "I have received a complaint about the ragging from the girl's local guardian. It is a very unfortunate incident." She was admitted to the university hospital on Monday from where her she was shifted to the Burdwan Medical College Hospital on Tuesday after her condition deteriorated, university sources said.

The Registrar said he has instructed the Proctor and the Principal of the concerned Bhavan to look into the matter.

With medical admissions now taking place ragging by senior medicos is not unusual although most states have banned it and it is considered to be a punishable offence. Ragging is a time old practise in medical colleges.

I, on behalf of India's leading Anti Ragging Group,Coalition to Uproot Ragging from Education (C.U.R.E.) highly condemn this ragging incident & thank Medindia for covering the issue. We had received the news soon after it happened and mailed our message in response to the news. The West Bengal Chapter of Coalition to Uproot Ragging from Education (C.U.R.E.) , would like to offer every possible help to the victim and her family and also to any other victim. C.U.R.E. demands strong punishment for the guilty. We also appeal to every conscious citizen to unite against ragging, so that this perversion may be abolished from our society.
