2 IGMC interns suspended for ragging complaint in Himachal

Shimla: Aman Kachroo’s case has given courage to students to fight-back the evil of ragging and this has shown in the suspension of two interns of the Indira Gandhi Medical College, Shimla, here today. The two students are identified as Nikhil Verma and Sushant Sharma.

First-year student Vivek Sharma lodged a complaint along with some other students of his batch with the warden of the hostel R S Pathania against these two senior interns who under the influence of liquor allegedly harassed him last (Thrusday) night.

“We summoned both the parties (the complainant and the accused students) today morning and found them (the interns) guilty,” Principal of IGMC Surendra Kashyap told IANS.

A suspension of six months, expulsion from hostel and a fine of Rs. 1000 has been slapped on the faces of Nikhil and Sushant.

However, Himachal Govt. announced zero tolerance to ragging with suspension of students alongwith non-bailable imprisonment for three years in a cabinet decision on Friday.
