The Supreme Court on Monday sought an explanation from the Andhra Pradesh Government as to why no criminal case was registered against the principal of a college in which a girl student attempted suicide due to ragging.

A bench of Justices Arijit Pasayat and Asok Kumar Ganguly also ordered “forthwith” suspension of the principal of Rajendra Prasad Medical College,Kangra,Himachal Pradesh,where Aman Kachroo,a student,died due to ragging excesses.

The apex court passed the directions while dealing with an application filed by Additional Solicitor General and Amicus Curiae Gopal Subramaniam on the two incidents.

The bench further said that the Raghvan Committee earlier appointed by the apex court on the ragging menace would also inquire into the Aman Kachroo incident and submit a report.

Nineteen-year-old Kachroo died on March 8 after being allegedly beaten up by four seniors at the Rajendra Prasad Medical College in Kangra.

In another incident,a girl student attempted suicide by consuming pesticide after senior students forced her to dance in the nude at the Bapatla Agriculture & Engineering College in AP’s Guntur district.
