Amidst reports that the nature of the ragging incident in a medical college here was similar to a scene in Aamir Khan-starrer ‘3Idiots', Maharashtra government said it would go through its script.

“We will ask the movie's producer to submit its script as there are media reports that the Seth Medical college ragging incident nature was similar to the one shown in ‘3idiots',” state Medical Education Minister Vijaykumar Gavit told reporters here.

“Only after going through the script future course of action would be decided...Also, we would write to the Censor Board that as far as possible such scenes should be avoided in movies,” he said.

As many as 18 students of Seth G S Medical College have been arrested yesterday, and later released on bail today, on charges of ragging.

One of the scenes from ‘3 Idiots' showed freshers played by Aamir Khan, Sharman Joshi and Madhavan being ragged by their seniors in the hostel.
