Feb 20, Colombo: The Sri Lanka government is considering activating the Anti-Ragging Bill, which was passed in Parliament several years ago.
Minister of Higher Education Prof. Wishwa Warnapala, addressing media after the release of the Z-score cut off marks for university admission, stressed the need for implementing regulations related to the Anti-Ragging Bill. He said ragging in universities has increased to an unacceptable level in the recent past.
The government blamed the interference of political movements on university premises, who use ragging to influence newcomers to join them.
