Bhopal: There has been another allegation of ragging from the Scindia School in Gwalior. The parent of a Class 8 student from Bareilly has alleged that he wants to withdraw his son from the school due to ragging.

The parent in an email has alleged that his son was mentally tortured in the school and even forcibly made to watch porn.

Reacting to this allegation, Scindia School Principal Samik Ghosh said, "We are talking with the higher management, at this stage we will not be able to comment on this issue."

Madhya Pradesh Education Minister Deepka Joshi has said that the government will ensure that such an incident is not repeated. "This is a very serious offence. We will take required precautionary measures," Joshi said.

The Madhya Pradesh Child Rights Commission has taken suo motu cognizance of the CNN-IBN report on the ragging incident.

Earlier this week, three students from the school were expelled on charges of ragging a Bihar minister's son, a Class 9 student from the Scindia School. He is in the ICU and in a critical condition.

The House Master and Assistant Master, accused of negligence, have been arrested in the case.
