Uttar Pradesh: BJP MLA’s grandson and fresher in Aligarh Muslim University alleges ragging, lodges complaint

The Dean of the International Language Department, Professor Mohammad Gulrez trivialized the matter by saying that it was not a very serious matter.

Vijay Singh, the grandson of BJP MLA from Barauli, Dalvir Singh, has registered a complaint with the Civil Lines police station and the university authorities, alleging ragging by seniors in the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).

Vijay, who is a fresher in the department of foreign languages in the university, alleged that on the first day of college, seniors entered his class, interrupted it and started ragging the juniors. He complained of being verbally assaulted by seniors during the introduction at Aligarh Muslim University.

“It was the first day of class when the seniors entered the class and interrupted it. The teacher was made to go out and they started ragging us. They asked students to stand up and sit down, to go outside and come in. I have complained to the police and to the Proctor and Pro-Vice-Chancellor,” said Vijay.

The Dean of the International Language Department, Professor Mohammad Gulrez, however, trivialized the matter by saying that it was not a very serious matter. “It was a trivial matter. The second-year students just wanted to get an introduction and unfortunately, he took it as ragging. He also got into a verbal spat with a senior. The anti-ragging committee is looking into it and the matter will be resolved soon.”

Meanwhile, AMU spokesperson Shafey Kidwai has said: “AMU has a strong system in place against ragging. Vijay Singh’s complaint was received at the office of proctor & has been forwarded to the department of foreign languages. Their anti-ragging committee has sent notices to involved students”.

Recently, another case of ragging at a medical college in Uttar Pradesh had surfaced where around 150 MBBS students studying at Saifai Medical College in Etawah, Uttar Pradesh were forced to tonsure their heads and salute their seniors in the name of ragging.

Last year too, a similar case had come to the fore in which around 100 first-year students of Motilal Nehru Medical College in Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh were forced to tonsure their heads and were thrashed if someone dared to disobey the orders.

On 22 May 26-year-old Payal Tadvi, a second-year MD in gynaecology at BYL Nair Hospital in Mumbai Central, hanged herself in the college hostel room alleging harassment by seniors.
