Alleged ragging in NUJS bans third-year student from representing college

The West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences (NUJS), Kolkata recently banned a third-year student from representing the school in any sort of extracurricular and external activities this academic year, after allegations of ragging shook the school again.

 A first-year law student and his parents had complained against this particular senior back in July, saying that he has made the junior bring him food and make unnecessary speeches.

 The NUJS authorities, including NUJS Vice Chancellor Ishwara Bhatt and three faculty members had started an inquiry after receiving the complaints.

In August, the senior apologized in writing, which made the junior withdraw his complaint. The inquiry committee however continued with the investigation and finally decided to take this step against the senior. GyanCentral had reported against alleged ragging at law schools before this, but nobody came out in the open to confirm it.

 When GyanCentral spoke to registrar of NUJS, Dr.Surajit C Mukhopadhyay, he confirmed the news..

Allegations of ragging in NUJS and few other law schools were made me sometime in July this year. While some juniors anonymously agreed about it, some completely refuted the claims.

 NUJS appointed a student counsellor Barnali Ghosh earlier this month
