While the ongoing case of ragging at Dibrugarh University is making headlines, Assam Medical College reported a similar case.
Two students of orthopedic department were expelled for six months by the medical college authorities.
The notice read, “On the basis of the report of the Anti-Ragging Committee, the following Postgraduate students of the department of Orthopedics, Assam Medical College, Dibrugarh were found guilty of harassing junior Postgraduate students both physically and mentally, which is a gross misconduct. Hence, on the recommendation of the Anti-Ragging Committee, the following disciplinary actions are imposed upon the guilty PG students of department of Orthopaedics.”
The following were the disciplinary actions taken on the students:
Suspension from attending classed and academic privileges for six months
Suspension/Expulsion from the hostel immediately.
The two students suspended were:
Dr. Sayan Mukherjee (2021-22)

Although the notice was issued on November 21, however, the incident came to light after the recent ragging case from Dibrugarh University which compelled a student to jump off a two-storey building.
