The police arrested 30 students of the Universal Engineering College, Vallivattom, for ragging juniors on Tuesday.
The police said that they acted on a complaint filed by the college principal N Premachandran stating that some students had ragged juniors on the college premises.
The complaint said the students assaulted the juniors when they arrived at the college by car on Sept14. “They beat them up and damaged the door of the vehicle. Besides, the senior students also threatened to kill them if they dared to come to the college again by car,” the police said. Following this, the anti-ragging committee of the college conducted a probe into the issue and found the senior students guilty.
