To put an end to ragging incidents at its affiliated colleges, the Bangalore University has decided to send out a strong  message to all its students.

The university is directing college principals to suspend students involved in ragging,  pending inquiry. Following the alleged ragging incident at M S Ramaiah College on Sunday,  Vice-Chancellor B Thimme Gowda asked college authorities to suspend those found guilty of ragging.

Gowda told Express, “I am directing the concerned authorities of the colleges to suspend the students involved in such acts. The  students will be given a chance to prove their innocence, and if it is proved, we will revoke the suspension.”

“I am issuing an official circular in this regard to all the member colleges and will ensure that it is followed strictly,” he said.

According to Gowda, if incidents that amount to ragging occur at colleges, the principals of the institutions should initiate action against the perpetrators.

Meanwhile, the varsity sent notices to M S Ramaiah Management College and Dayanand Sagar School of Management where incidents of ragging cases were reported and demanded an explanation.

However, the V-C also directed the college authorities to keep their Anti-ragging Cells active and report on the status of their cell to the university within a week.
