Cuttack: A student of Ravenshaw University has lodged a complaint with the Malgodown police against a senior student for allegedly ragging him for commenting on a social media post, made by the latter.
The complainant Suryakant Mohapatra, a 2nd-year student of Sanskrit department, has alleged that an MBA student assaulted him for posting a comment on his Facebook post.
The accused senior student had uploaded a post in support of a particular party, to which Suryakant commented with varying opinion.

But when Suryakant resisted such act, the senior beat him black and blue. They also threatened to kill him if he disclosed the matter to anybody else.
“They abused and thrashed me and forced me to delete my post on social media. Not only that, they also threatened to kill me,” Suryakant said to the police.
The medical examination of Suryakant has been completed and an investigation is underway in to the allegation, police said.
