Guntur, August 07: Guntur Police on Monday released three multi-colour posters that educate students and college faculty on provisions under the A.P. Anti Ragging Act 1997 and warning miscreants against such acts.
Superintendent of Police Mahesh Chandra Laddha said seminars would be organised in all professional colleges and other degree and junior colleges will also be covered depending on the dates to be given by the college managements. Provision for punishment would be explained and students asked to mend their ways of welcoming freshers.
Imprisonment between 6 months and 7 years had been prescribed, and these posters would be displayed in all college notice boards. The college managements were supposed to constitute anti-ragging committees on the campus and make students aware of the provisions of the Act as it was the responsibility of the management to control ragging.
Conviction by the court could lead to rustication of students and abettors would also be punished.
Guntur Rural DSP BRN Tagore and Mangalagiri Circle Inspector of Police also participated in a brief function organised to release the posters.
