The authorities of the MKCG Medical College and Hospital, Berhampur have debarred four medicos from the campus on charges of ragging a second-year student. 

The dean in charge of the medical college on Saturday informed about the punishment handed out to the students. While two students, who reportedly assaulted the second-year student, have been debarred from visiting the college campus for two months, two other students who had provided lifts to those senior students have been restricted from the college campus for one week.
