New Delhi: Taking a strict view of complaints of ragging in a Sainik school in Jharkhand, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has asked the Defence Ministry to submit a detailed report in a stipulated time frame.

According to one such complaint received by the apex child rights body, a student had attempted suicide after being repeatedly ragged by the seniors in the army school, an NCPCR release said here today.

Another complaint said a class VIII student was ragged by seniors since his admission and was recently forced to do 500 push-ups.

The child now does not want to continue his education in the school and is back to his hometown in Ranchi working in his father's tea stall, the release said.

Condemning the incidents, the NCPCR has asked Defence Secretary Shashikant Sharma to take necessary action in the matter and send a factual report along with authenticated copies of the relevant documents within a stipulated time frame.
