The girl suffered injuries and was admitted to the hospital after the incident. She was discharged from the hospital today and then lodged a complaint with the police today.

Agroha Medical College has constituted a three-member inquiry committee into the incident and asked the probe panel to submit the report by Monday.

The Hisar police said a case under Sections 354, 499, 506 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code had been registered against her senior students, identified as Divyanshi Ranihal and Deepika Sikriwal, on the complaint of the victim.

The victim said she took admission in the MBBS course in 2018. She alleged that two weeks after the admission, two second year girls Divyanshi and Deepika started torturing her by ragging.

She alleged that she had made a verbal complaint to the hostel warden, but they did not take any action. The accused continued to harass her and also threatened her that if she complained to the family, they would ensure that she failed in the examination and even threatened to push her off the roof of the hostel.

The complainant alleged that the harassment continued unabated and on opposing them, she was boycotted in the hostel and also a message was put on the WhatsApp group that no one should talk to her. Under such circumstances, she went into depression, she stated in the complaint.

The victim said that she also shared her plight with her former teacher Dr Mahesh Kumar, who is now employed in Jindal Hospital in Hisar. She said she jumped off the terrace of the hospital after coming out of the meeting Dr Mahesh.
