The victim’s mother, Sarita Sharma, claimed that senior students were ragging on her son. “He told me that they haven’t let him sleep for four months… Food must be delivered to them (the seniors) at night. Their dirty utensils must be washed… he used to tell us all of this, but we used to tell him that it was also a life lesson. He used to request a transfer to a private hostel. But we can’t keep him in a private hostel and teach at the same time. We don’t have the resources. I never imagined this happening to my son “According to the victim’s mother.
