This incident is the second of its kind in the state within a month, following the suspension of 10 students at Gandhi Medical College in Hyderabad for similar allegations.

According to Mattewada Police Inspector N Venkathewerlu, notices have been served to the students accused of ragging. The second-year student, originally from Rajasthan, was asked by the senior students to fetch water. When he refused, they allegedly assaulted him in his room.

The seven KMC students are facing charges under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Prohibition of Ragging Act, 1997.

KMC Principal Dr. Divvela Mohandas stated that the college’s anti-ragging committee would convene a meeting to determine the appropriate course of action, depending on the meeting’s outcome.

On September 11, 10 MBBS students from Gandhi Medical College in Hyderabad received one-year suspensions for engaging in ragging their junior counterparts. This decision was made by the anti-ragging committee following an inquiry that found them guilty of “indulging in ragging” over several days.
