Student dismissed for ragging

 A third-year engineering student was dismissed from his college and six others suspended for a week on charges of ragging and assaulting a first-year student on the college premises in Ponmar, near Tambaram a few days ago.

 A note from the management of Prince Dr. K. Vasudevan College of Engineering and Technology, Ponmar, said the first-year student of mechanical engineering was ragged and assaulted by a group of third-year students from the same stream on August 28. Two days later, the anti-ragging committee of the college summoned the third-year student primarily responsible for the incident. However, the student did not turn up for the meeting following which his parents were asked to come to the college and briefed about their son’s involvement.

 On August 31, the student, along with his friends, disrupted classes forcing the management to inform the police who conducted discussions with the agitating senior students but to no avail. The anti-ragging committee was convened again and it was unanimously decided to dismiss the third-year student from the college and suspend six others for a week.
