FOUR ACCUSED STUDENTS EXPELLED FROM COLLEGE
Dharamsala March 13:
Four medical students arrested on murder charges following the death of their junior Aman Kachroo allegedly due to ragging have been expelled from the Kangra college even as the state government gave a fortnight for completion of the magisterial probe into the incident.
Additional District Magistrate, Kangra, Sandeep Kumar has been tasked with inquiry into the death of Kachroo, Principal Secretary Home Subhash Negi told a news agency in Shimla. Negi said terms of reference of the magisterial probe into Kachru's death on last Sunday included finding sequence of events into the tragic death and role and responsibility of the college authority.
After the report is submitted to the government stern action would be taken based on its recommendations, he added. 19-year-old Kachroo had died on Sunday night in a hospital in Tanda due to severe injuries suffered allegedly during ragging by four of his seniors. The Dr Rajendra Prasad Government Medical College Tanda in Kangra district, about 20 km from here, has expelled four students involved in the death of Kachroo.
The four students--Ajay Kumar Verma, Naveen Verma, Abhinav Verma and Mukul Sharma, except for Ajay Kumar Verma who is an intern, have been expelled for two years, the new principal of the college Anil Chauhan told a news agency. Their expulsion would be reviewed after two years.
