Khurda: Probing into the alleged ragging of a first year student of a private engineering college in Baniatangi area of Khurda, police today arrested Titlagarh ex-MLA Surendra Singh Bhoi's son Sobhen and his friend.
Sobhen and his classmate Baba Shankar Das, both third year students of the institute, were arrested after the duo was found involved in harassing first year students of the college since past few days.
Protesting the humiliation, the juniors had gheraoed the District Collector’s office on Monday demanding stringent action against the senior students.
They had alleged that the seniors have been severely beating, torturing and threatening them in various ways. They further accused the college authorities of ignoring their complaints lodged earlier.
