On charges of ragging and assaulting teachers, almost 7 students from colleges in Assam’s Dibrugarh town have been put on suspension.
The disciplinary action was taken against four postgraduate students of Dibrugarh University and three undergraduate students from the Assam Medical College in Dibrugarh.
The two-semester suspension of the four students from Dibrugarh University came on charge on assaulting some junior boarders of the hostel.
“The action was taken based on a complaint by some junior boarders that they were physically and mentally tortured by seniors at their hostel. A five-member committee formed to enquire into the incident found them guilty,” Dibrugarh University Registrar Pradip Kumar Bhuyan said.
In the meanwhile, three undergraduate students were expelled from the Assam Medical College on Tuesday for allegedly assaulting a teacher last week.
The incident took place outside the college campus around midnight on September 2.
