Ghaziabad, November 29
The Vijay Nagar police have arrested eight students of Santosh Medical College, Ghaziabad, for their involvement in ragging. Some students who were allegedly ragging Naginder, a first year student of the MBBS course, yesterday later beat him up also. Another student, Rajiv, had reportedly saved Naginder from further harassment at the hands of the seniors.

In retaliation, the raggers reached the hostel rooms of those who had sided with Naginder and indulged in hooliganism there in the evening.

On being informed, the Vijay Nagar police swooped on the hostel and arrested Amit of Bhajanpura, Delhi, Rajiv Bansla of Mathura, Manoj of Jhansi, Gaurav of Badayun, Yoginder of Agra and Vijay Shankar of Allahabad.
