NEW DELHI: Six MBBS interns of the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMC&H), Nagpur have been suspended for allegedly ragging a junior student, an official said on Wednesday.

The suspended students were undergoing internship. The allegedly ragging took place six months ago. The complainant secretly shot a video of the incident, the college official said.
