Coimbatore: In an initiative aimed at curbing eve teasing in educational institutions, the city police have provided complaint boxes in every college to help girl students facing trouble.

The students can drop their complaints in the box providing details about the troublemakers so that police can take necessary action, Police Commissioner P Sivanandi said.

Besides, plainclothes policemen would be moving around identified places to take action against mischief makers.

The official was addressing Principals and representatives of students and managements of a few colleges here on the ill-effects of ragging.

He asked the principals, who are heading the Anti-Ragging Committee in the colleges, to convene the committee meeting every week, by inviting all the members, and sensitise the students and staff about the ill-effects of ragging.

Police last week registered cases against five students of a college based on a complaint, he said, adding complaints from two more colleges were being looked into.

Since the ragging was occurring during the first three months of new academic year, the administration should convene meetings of students during this period and caution against such barbaric acts, Sivanandi said.
