College student in Kannur college ragged, assaulted by seniors for speaking to girls, 20 arrested
A grievously injured Anshad was rushed to a private hospital at Varam by teachers and later to the private hospital at Kannur
Chakkarakkallu police have registered a case against 20 students of
Naher College, Kanhirode, in connection with a ragging incident, which resulted in injuries to a second-year degree student of the college.
Officers said that the case was registered on the basis of a complaint from the college management over violence perpetrated on Anshad (19) of Chekkikkulam, who was discharged from a local hospital — where he had been admitted to in the wake of the incident — on Saturday.
The incident occurred around 2 pm on Friday when senior students picked on Anshad for speaking to girl students. Anshad alleged that his tormentors had also demanded money from him. The seniors forcibly took away his mobile phone and checked the details of his bank balance. Then, they dragged him out of the classroom and thrashed him. After a few minutes, they came back and dragged him to the college toilet where he was cruelly beaten up. Anshad said that the seniors had hit his head against the toilet wall and kicked him on the head and chest several times.
