Malappuram: At least 21 students of a government medical college in Manjeri of Kerala`s Malappuram district have been suspended following allegations of ragging.

The freshers were made to wash toilets and drink polluted water as part of ragging.

Around 40 students lodged a complaint about the same with the college administration following which action was taken.

The college`s internal committee has begun its investigation and will submit its report to the anti-ragging committee today.

The anti-ragging committee, which consists of representatives from the police and media, will after going through the report file a complaint as per the seriousness of the act.

Just two days ago, six college students accused of severely ragging first-year students of a government polytechnic college in Kottayam surrendered before the police. 

According to reports, there are a total of seven accused in the case and two are still absconding.

According to the Supreme Court`s guidelines, accommodations where freshers are accommodated should be carefully guarded by a warden. Also, the entry of seniors and outsiders shall be prohibited after specified hour of night to prevent such incidents.
