NCC Cadets Beaten: Maharashtra Assembly Opposition Raises Issue; Govt Assures Probe
On Friday, a man thrashed NCC cadets in Thane, and Mumbai’s newly elected Leader of the Opposition, Vijay Wadettiwar, brought the incident to light. Speaker Rahul Narvekar, in response to the opposition’s call for action, has ordered the administration to go further on this matter.
Ajit Pawar, the state’s deputy chief minister, assured lawmakers that those responsible would be held accountable. Former Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan has also called for enforcement of the anti-ragging law.
This Video Went Viral Yesterday
A disturbing video purportedly showing numerous National Cadet Corps (NCC) trainees being beaten by their seniors at Joshi-Bedekar College in Thane’s Vidya Prasarak Mandal institution went viral.
The video has rocked Thane, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde’s hometown. No one had come forward to report the event before yesterday evening. Therefore, the police did not open an investigation until then.
At least six unnamed students can be seen lying on the ground in the mud and rain while their senior classmates beat them with sticks. Despite the students’ cries for help and pleas, the beatings continue.

I have seen such beating of NCC cadets in college.
This is how they are shaped when some of them enter police/paramilitary/army. https://t.co/tWD95VAmVA

The act was described as “shocking” and “shameful” by Joshi-Bedekar College Principal Suchitra Naik.
“In my opinion, the upperclassmen who have participated in the harsh beating of the underclassmen are mentally ill. That’s because they’re not human.
Most students and their parents keep relatively quiet, seemingly out of fear for their educational futures. We’ve made a plea to the impacted kids, asking them to come forward, name the seniors involved, and file complaints.
She remarked that while the NCC had previously done laudable work at the university, the recent episode was “really shameful.”
