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.
