Lucknow: In a shocking case of ragging from Uttar Pradesh, over a hundred and fifty junior students of a medical college were seen with heads shaved on campus. The incident has come to light from the UP University of Medical Sciences in Saifai where around 150 medical students were seen roaming around the campus with their heads shaved.

In a first glance and preliminary reports suggest of a clear case of ragging, the university’s vice-chancellor told that strict action will be taken against anyone involved in non-disciplinary action. He also said that the junior students can approach their warden with complaints in this regard. He will personally keep an eye open for any mischievious activity.

UP Rural Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, known formerly, is located on the Kurawali-Mainpuri-Etawah Road. The students in question are reportedly junior medical aspirants who joined the institution as part of the most recent admission process earlier this year. No state government officials have yet commented on the issue.

Instances of ragging are not uncommon in colleges across India. In fact, a recent report by an NGO revealed that there has been a rise of over 80 per cent in ragging incidents in medical colleges in the country in the last two years as compared to 2016.  The laws in India describe ragging as disorderly conduct either by acts or spoken words aimed at teasing or treating one with rudeness.
