An FIR has been lodged against two students, who are brothers, of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Muzaffarpur, for brutally assaulting one of their classmates in a suspected case of ragging.
The FIR was lodged against the two after a video of the assault appeared on the social media on Thursday.
On the direction of Union minister of state for HRD Upendra Kushwaha, a four-member team of Kendriya Vidyalaya visited the school today to inquire into the incident.
“On the directive of the senior superintendent of police, an FIR was lodged yesterday against the two students for beating their classmate,” Kaji Muhammadpur police station SHO Mithilesh Kumar Jha told PTI.
Rajiv Ranjan, the Principal of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Gannipur, Muzaffarpur, had lodged a written complaint with the Kaji Muhammadpur police station on the basis of which the FIR was lodged.
The purported video of the incident shows the two accused brothers– one of them a student of class 12 and another class 11– pushing and thrashing the victim, a student of class 12, in the presence of some other schoolmates on September 25.
The two accused are said to be related to a criminal who is absconding in connection with several cases.
