Three months after two 11th standard students were beaten up in Delhi Public School, Noida by their seniors, the District Administration decided to take an initiative for anti-ragging. District Magistrate, NP Jindal on Sunday, had asked all the educational institutes of Noida & Greater Noida to form anti-ragging committees and organise workshop for students.
“Thousands of students from different states and countries get admitted to colleges in Greater Noida. The aim is to create a friendly atmosphere and make the new students feel comfortable,” said Jindal.
Earlier this year, two boys- a 15year old from UP & a 16 year old from Kolkata- complained that they were ragged and frequently beaten up by their seniors in school. One of the two protested against the ragging. Both the students claimed that the seniors beat them up with iron rod & kick them.
“Using derogatory comments against fellow students is also considered ragging. Stringent action should be taken against violators,” said DM, he said that the students should be sensitized before the new academic session starts.
