Two Ramjas final-year students suspended in ragging case

Delhi University’s Ramjas College has suspended two third-year students, after receiving complaints that they were involved in ragging students on campus.

Based on complaints received by the college anti-ragging committee in the last week of February, two third-year students have been suspended, pending enquiry,” said Dr P N Duttagupta, Vice-Principal and head of the college disciplinary committee.

The anti-ragging committee had received complaints against seven students, five of whom have been let off with a warning. Two have been suspended, and face expulsion if found guilty.

“Two of the students against whom the complaint was received on February 27 were found to have been greatly involved in the ragging incident, so they have been suspended and were asked to present themselves before the anti-ragging committee on March 14. The committee is still enquiring into the issue, and no other details can be revealed now. In the case of the other five students, the involvement was found to be minor by the committee so they have been let off with a warning,” Dr Duttagupta said.

Of those suspended, one is a final-year BA programme student, while the other is a final-year BSc Physics Honours student.

They were suspended with immediate effect on March 12 by the Principal for “anti-disciplinary and ragging activities in college, as per the directions of the college anti-ragging committee”, and were also banned from entering the campus.
