[New Kerala] HC sets aside suspension of two nursing students

Kochi: The Kerala High Court today set aside the suspension of two students of SME Nursing College, Kottayam, in connection with the alleged ragging of a first year student last year.

Allowing the petitions by third year students -- Alpha Jose and Binsiya Mohammed, Justice C B Ramachandran Nair said that under the Prohibition of Ragging Act 1988, victims or their parents or any teachers of the institutions could file a complaint in case of any ragging.
