Agartala: A Serious allegation of ragging by senior students in Jawhar Navodoya Vidyalaya at Ramchandraghat in Khowai district has caused serious concern and the guardians are demanding immediate action after proper investigation.
The matter came to light after a class VIII student along with his guardian went to Khowai police station and filed a complaint against four senior students who used to torture him and other students.
Nani Gopal Barman who hails from Kemtali area of Melaghar and guardian of the victim student said he has earlier informed the Principal and the House Master about the happenings in the hostel but they have taken no action. Rather the scale of torture has increased with the passage of time.
He said the higher class students often enter into the Udaigiri hostel and forced the juniors to wash their clothes and some other works. Sometimes they were forced to message their bodies. They used to be subjected to physical torture in case of any protest.
He alleged that the school authority is unable to control the upper-class students. A few years ago a similar allegation was raised when a student from Melaghar died due to ragging.
