Eight BHU students suspended for ragging
Varanasi: Eight engineering students of the Banaras Hindu University here have been suspended on charges of ragging, college authorities said on Thursday.
"The university has cancelled the registrations of all eight students of semester II in B Tech branch for the current semester and imposed fine of Rs 5,000 on them," Rajesh Singh, chairman of PPP cell, BHU, said here.
The eight accused had forcefully taken one Pratik Makhija, an electrical engineering student, to a university hostel room and verbally abused him before asking him to take off his clothes, Singh said.
The victim complained to college authorities on September 11, following which an internal inquiry was conducted.
In the report submitted after the inquiry on September 21, Harsh Kumar, Risabh Mishra, Rahul Sharma, Rakesh Kumar Sharma, Manish Jindal, Harshit Gupta, Ashish Yadav and Sahil Sirohi were found guilty, he said.
They have been expelled from the hostel and barred from entering into the University premises, he said.
