 The administration of South Eastern University of Sri Lanka in Oluvil has suspended 331 second year students of the Management Faculty alleged of engaging in ragging. Among the suspended are 220 female students.

The University administration has prohibited the students from entering the university premises, for refusing to comply with the university’s anti-ragging policy.

Vice Chancellor, Professor M.M.M. Najim said student leaders of four out of the five faculties have agreed not to engage in ragging the freshmen and the suspended students of the Management Faculty had not agreed.

He said the parents of new students had complained about their children being ragged.

However, the Secretary of the Student Union of the South Eastern University Thilina Gamage denied that the second year student subjected the freshmen to ragging. He said it is an act of revenge to make the university a prohibited zone for the second year students without any investigation.
