SULTAN BATHERY: A student, who newly joined Class 10 in the Moolankave government school in Wayanad, was brutally beaten up by his classmates in the name of ragging.

He was also stabbed in the face with scissors. Sabarinath, who sustained injuries on his face, ears and entire body, is undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Kalpetta.
