Durgapur, Dec. 11: Ten first-year students of a Durgapur college who have not been allegedly allowed to attend classes since early last month because they protested ragging came under police protection today to fill up exam registration forms.
The ten students of Michael Madhusudan College alleged that they had been ragged by two seniors who are affiliated to the Trinamul Congress Chhatra Parishad.
One of the 10 students, who alleged that they were forced to smoke and drink alcohol by the seniors, had lodged a complaint with the Union human resource development ministry’s anti-ragging website last week. The complaint was forwarded to the college authorities, who informed the police.
The complainant has mentioned the names of Dinesh Maji, a third-year commerce student, and Mohammad Asraf, a third-year arts students.
According to the complaint, the duo had threatened to “destroy” the careers of the juniors.
The college authorities today called the 10 students and assured them about their safety on the premises.
The accused students, Maji and Asraf, did not come to college today.
