KOLKATA: A third-year student of Bengal Engineering and Science University (Besu) was allegedly assaulted by seven seniors on February 22. The student complained to the university authorities, who called the guardians of those seven fourth-year students. They were let off after a warning.
The university swung into action only after the victim lodged a complaint with an anti-ragging helpline in Delhi. A fine of `5000 each was imposed on the students and the victim lodged an FIR with the Shibpur police station on February 28. "Besu has formed a committee to probe the incident. The committee will submit its findings to the vice-chancellor on March 7," said registrar Biman Banerjee.
