BURLA: Allegations of ragging in VSS University of Technology have come to fore. Second year students have reportedly left the hostels after they were subjected to ragging on several occasions over the week.

There are eight hostels in VSS University of Technology including three for female students. Five other hostels are called ‘hall of residences’ and house the boys. While the south hostel, known as hall of residence ‘Marichi’ houses the first year students, the remaining four hostels house boys of all classes mixed together. Sources said the second year students are being ragged by the seniors and their complaints to authorities concerned have failed to evoke any response.

Pro Vice-Chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi University, Arunachal Pradesh, Prof Sushanta Nayak whose kin left the hall of residence ‘Vashistha’, confirmed incidents of ragging. He said the second year students are being stubbed with cigarette butts, drenched with beer and forced hair-cut. Similar complaint has also been made by relatives of a student who resides in hall of residence ‘Angira’. 

Dean of Welfare, Prashanta Nanda, refuted the allegation.
