Mangaluru: In a complaint to the national anti-ragging helpline on Tuesday evening, a first year MSc student from Mangalore University has alleged of being ragged by a fellow hostel inmate. He has accused the inmate of humiliating, abusing and manhandling him. The victim in question is an inmate of Sowparnika hostel here.

In his complaint the victim alleged that he was beaten and abused by a student belonging to another PG course.

On Wednesday, the anti-ragging committee set up by Mangalore University investigated the allegation based on the complaint and prima facie indicated of such an incident to have taken place. A report in this connection will be submitted to the University Grants Commission (UGC) by the committee.

But the slippers were not returned by the senior and instead, Anil visited the victim’s room to return back the goods. The victim and the accused live in separate hostels. The victim alleged that the accused failed to return the slippers in a proper manner and instead threw them at him, abused and even manhandled him.
