In this case, it seems that both the fellow students who studied with Ananda Sharma were ragged on the day of the incident. The anti-rogging committee of the university has started an inquiry into the matter.
Meanwhile, in the complaint filed by the victim’s mother, “My son has been harassed by seniors for a long time. He complained to me that the seniors are taking his money, taking away his cell phone. They are harassing me mentally and physically. Photographs of ganja and liquor bottles were stuffed on my son’s hand. They are planning to take it and use it to intimidate them for their own defense in the future. He has been complaining about senior students for the past 4 months.” This incident has created a lot of excitement in Assam.
