Kozhikode: In what has been alleged as a continuation of ragging by seniors, a student in Kozhikode was brutally assaulted by a gang on Wednesday.

Mohammed Midhulaj from Pullalloor, a second-year degree student of MES College of Arts and Sciences, Chathamangalam, has been admitted to the Medical College Hospital with multiple injuries on his face and back.

Midhulaj's father said his son was subjected to ragging by a gang of about 20 students that had verbally abused him on Saturday. It is alleged that the gang questioned him over his dress and hairstyle before launching a brutal attack.

“My son was brutally ragged by his college mates,” Midhulaj's father Mohammed told Onmanorama. “His eyes are swollen, and he has some problems to see, the nasal bone is also damaged,” he said.

According to reports, two other students of the same college were also assaulted by the gang. They have sustained minor injuries. The Kunnamangalam Police has registered a case.
