New Delhi, Aug. 3 (ANI): The Kirori Mal College on Monday decided to expel two students for their involvement in a ragging episode.
Two final year students, Akshay Chaudhary and Hani Mohammad, allegedly ragged and vulgarly harassed first year student Ashutosh in the college hostel on Sunday.
Later, the victim complained to the hostel warden.
Acting on the complaint, the college summoned a meeting of its Disciplinary and Anti-Ragging Committee on Monday and it was decided to expel the two students.
"We all are convinced that such ragging should not take place. But since it has happened so we decided to expel those two boys immediately and at the same time write to the police station of Maurice Nagar lodging an FIR leading to arrest of the boys so that these two actions simultaneously go a long way in the history of higher education of India," said Bhim Sen Singh, Principal, Kirori Mal College.
Most students supported strict action taken by the college management.
"Simple introduction with juniors is fine but so much of ragging is taking place. The victims should get justice if they have faced ragging and the seniors involved in ragging should be punished," opined Poonam Chaddha, a KMC student.
However, some senior students felt that the students involved in light ragging should not be punished so harshly since ragging is a traditional way for the familiarisation of the freshers.
"If they have engaged in rude ragging or disturbed or irritated some student, then they must be suspended. But if they ragged merely for introduction or generally for enjoyment then they are at no fault and should not have been suspended," noted Megha Kumar, another student.agging has long been an issue of debate in Indian educational institutions. So much so incidents of ragging compelled the Centre to enforce strict anti-ragging laws in the universities and colleges. (ANI)
