I guess by "group" item you want to indicate an item that has child items. If so, you can examine the attached project where a basic approach is realized. It uses the PreviewDragStarted event of the source tree and stops the drag operation if the dragged item has children. Please let us know if this helped you.
All the best,
the Telerik team
