Indore: First-year students of the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial (MGM) Medical College in Indore have accused their third-year students of ragging, harassment, and violence. The new students said that some seniors misbehaved with their female classmates, pushed them to perform sexual acts using pillows, and asked them to misbehave with their female classmates.
The issue came to light after the students complained to the University Grants Commission’s Anti-Ragging Helpline (UGC). The victims claimed in their lawsuit that their seniors had forced them into engaging in immoral and obscene behaviours, including unnatural intercourse. They were then instructed to mention a female classmate and make derogatory remarks about her.
The UGC’s anti-ragging unit had complained to the MGMMC dean regarding the matter and asked to lodge an FIR against the guilty parties. Thereafter, the ball is now in the police court to take appropriate action.
Meanwhile, MGM Medical College Dean Dr Sanjay Dixit said, “An upset student made a complaint to the UGC’s anti-ragging helpline a few days ago.” A meeting of the anti-ragging committee took place immediately after receiving the mail. The committee lodged an FIR and a letter was sent to the police. “
Speaking on the matter, Sanyogita Ganj police station in-charge Tehzeeb Qazi said, “We have registered a case of ragging on the complaint of MGM College.” 8 to 10 students have been booked under Sections 294, 323, and 506 of the Anti-Ragging Act. “
