A 19-year-old student allegedly forced by her seniors to drink a liquid used to clean toilets has said that her college in Karnataka is complicit in the extreme ragging because it did not punish earlier incidents. The student, a Dalit, was admitted to a hospital in her home state of Kerala on May 15 with serious burns to her internal organs. The Kerala police has asked Karnataka to register a case against the student's seniors on charges that include attempt to murder. Earlier this year, a study funded by the University Grants Commission found that only 8.6 per cent of ragged students speak out. What can institutions do to curb this menace? We debate on Agenda.
