Bareilly: A first year engineering student was hospitalised after a brutal assault by four seniors as part of ragging at a government-run university campus here, police said on Friday.

Jagjeevan, studying in BTech first year of mechanical engineering at the MJP Rohilkhand University, was Thursday beaten by a group of four senior students of B Tech third year of the same stream.

According to police, Jagjeevan in his complaint has alleged that the four seniors --Vivek Mathur, Sumit Kumar, Aseem and Himanshu -- first directed him to perform awkward actions while singing a song.

After Jagjeevan refused, the seniors started kicking him and even attacked him with belts and stones.

"Jagjeevan has received injuries in his head. He is being treated at a hospital and is stated to be out of danger," police inspector Netram Singh told reporters Friday in Bareilly, some 250 km from Lucknow.

"We have initiated a joint enquiry into the matter along with the varsity officials. Necessary action would be taken against the four students on completion of enquiry. All of them are absconding," he added.
