Juniors have been punished for refusing to even identify their tormentors.
54 girl students of the Darbhanga Medical College & Hospital (DMCH) have been fined ₹25,000 each for incidents of ragging.
This’s the 2nd instance of medical students being fined for ragging in the state within a fortnight.
The fined Darbhanga students include both 2nd year & 1st year students.
While the Seniors have been fined for their involvement in ragging, the Juniors have been financially punished for refusing to even identify their tormentors.
DMCH Principal Dr. R. K. Sinha, on Saturday, said a 1st year student had sent a complaint to the Medical Council of India (MCI) about the ragging.
“On Friday, the Medical Council of India informed my office & sought proper action against the culprits,” he said & added he immediately convened a meeting of the college’s anti- ragging committee on Friday.
The committee members went to Girls’ hostel for further investigation but neither the seniors nor the juniors confirmed incidents of ragging.
“According to the MCI rule in such a case, all the girls of the hostel have been fined ₹25,000 each,” the Principal said, adding the penalty was to be deposited by November 25 or else further action would be taken.
Earlier this month, the administration of the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and Hospital in Bhagalpur had imposed a fine of ₹25,000 each on 33 2nd year students for ragging their juniors.
