Five of the accused have been arrested

NEW DELHI: In yet another case of ragging, a teenager was brutally beaten up and made to strip and dance allegedly by his seniors at the Industrial Training Institute in Vivek Vihar here this week. Five of the accused -- Kushmakar, Yogesh, Vinod, Raju and Satish -- have been arrested and a minor detained. All six are residents of Delhi.

It all happened on Wednesday afternoon when nearly a dozen seniors caught hold of the teenager, took him to a hall and asked him to sing a song. “When he refused to follow their instructions, he was made to strip and forced to dance naked. When he resisted further, they punched and kicked him. He fell down on the ground and was then hit with an iron scale on his private parts,” said a senior police officer.

When he started bleeding, some of his tormentors took him to Hedgewar Hospital and allegedly warned him not to speak about the incident. “He received three stitches. On Thursday he noticed bleeding in the injured limb and went to GTB Hospital in East Delhi. Later in the day, he came to the police station accompanied by his family and lodged a complaint,” said the police.

A case has been registered under various Sections of the IPC.
