Ranchi: Jharkhand High Court on Wednesday directed the state government to ensure that there should not be any ragging incident in any educational institution.

Issuing the directions while hearing on a ragging incident at Sainik School in Koderma's Tilaiya happened about a year ago, the division bench of Chief Justice Prakash Chandra Tatia and Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh said punishment by belts or other cruel methods cannot be justified to make a student strong, stout and tough.

Though the incident which had taken place in Sanik School was old, it was the media, and not the school which revealed it, the bench observed in the presence of the principal of Sainik School.

The bench directed the government to take measures and ensure that there was no recurrence of such events in any educational institution in future.

The court took cognisance suo motu after media highlighted a ragging incident in Sainik School.

Later on November 16 last year, the police filed an FIR against two senior students of the school on the basis of a junior student’s statement accusing the duo of ragging him.
