IIT-Kharagpur students ‘forced to dance all night’, probe on

IIT Kharagpur has lodged a complaint with the police after an anonymous call was made to the UGC’s anti-ragging helpline. The call alleged that seniors had forced second- and third-semester students to participate in activities that left them traumatized. The police are investigating the incident and trying to identify the hostel and students involved. IIT Kharagpur has requested strict legal action against the perpetrators under the Anti-Ragging Act and relevant IPC sections. Another student’s death in the hostel last year is also being investigated for possible murder.
