The incident occurred in the Mewar Law College in Ghaziabad Friday afternoon.

“Some of us (1st year students), including three girls, were called by our seniors and asked to give our introductions. Soon however, the questions became personal and we objected. Some other seniors, however, intervened and they let us go,” Keshav, one of the victims, told IANS.

“But as we went outside the college, eight boys came in a car and thrashed both Vivek Tiwari and me,” Keshav said.

“We went and complained to the college chairman about the incident. The management told us to submit a written complaint and promised action against the seniors.

“The chairman also warned the senior boys. On the chairman’s word, the seniors have apologised to us,” Keshav said.

“We had also called the police control room but the police did not come. We shall complain to the police again,” Keshav said.

Circle officer (Indirapuram) Rahul Srivastava denied having received any complaint from anyone in this regard.

A senior management official of the Mewar Law College, said: “The seniors have apologised. The matter has been sorted out. Even Vivek’s father has accepted their apology and wants no future action against them.”
