Dui Doji, a first civil engineering student at NIT Agartala was physically assaulted by his seniors over ragging issue at wee hours Sunday.
A group of 15-20 students beat up 17- year-old Doji who hails from West Siang district leaving him unconscious. They also reportedly snatched away his phone only to return it back after sometime.
Doji is currently undergoing treatment in an Agartala based hospital and has suffered multiple fractures. Reportedly, one of his eardrums also got ruptured in the assault.
It has been informed that after the family members talked to the dean of the institute over the matter, instead of taking any action he asked them to refrain from lodging FIR fearing that the institution’s reputation would be maligned.
Doji was among the top 10 students from the state in the NIT entrance related examination last year.
