JNU students ragged

“We are shocked. It has never happened on our campus,” said JNU proctor Neera Kongari.

“The victims were fresh MCA (Masters in Computer Application) students and those who ragged them are semester third and fourth students. It is a first of its kind and sad incident in our university, and we are going to take the strongest action,” she said.

The incident took place in Tapti hostel on Wednesday night. Kongari said there were five to six students who were ragging their juniors.

“The anti-ragging committee got a tip-off about the incident and conducted the raid. They caught them red-handed. We have already withdrawn the accused students from the hostel,” Kongari said.

“Further inquiry is on. We will take stringent action so that such an act is never repeated on our campus,” she said.

When asked about the time line of real action and if they would be rusticated from the university, Kongari said: “The real action may take place next week as there are a few holidays this week. But authorities are consulting each other about the decision and soon you will see the result.”

According to police at the Vasant Vihar police station, no official communication or complaint from the varsity authorities has been received yet.
