Student molested, ‘paraded naked’ before death – Probe

The initial investigation into the death of a first-year student of India’s Jadavpur University on 9 August has revealed that the victim was paraded naked in the corridor of the second floor of a hostel minutes before he fell from there and died. While sharing the details of the preliminary probe, Kolkata Police said that the teen was “sexually molested”, news agency PTI reported.

The police have arrested 12 people so far in connection with the case and they include the current and former students of Jadavpur University who “had played active roles” in the entire episode. “The teen was definitely ragged and sexually molested. He was paraded naked in the corridor after he was forced to undress in room no 70. We have evidence,” the officer told PTI.

The questioning is still underway. The police said that two more students are summoned to appear before the investigators in connection with the probe.
