New Delhi, Aug 24: National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Friday issued notices to the Madhya Pradesh government regarding a case in which a girl committed suicide after being allegedly humiliated by seniors during ragging in college.
Notices have been issued to the Department of Education and Training principal secretary and Bhopal SSP.
They have been given four-week time to respond, an NHRC statement said.
According to media reports, the girl had committed suicide on August 6 after her alleged humiliation by seniors during ragging in RKDF College of Pharmacy in Bhopal.
