NLIU bans 6 ragging suspects from hostels (but no suspension, pending investigation)

NLIU continues ragging inquiry, bars 6 from hostel in meantime
NLIU continues ragging inquiry, bars 6 from hostel in meantime

NLIU Bhopal has barred six students from using its hostels pending its investigation into ragging allegations made anonymously against them, but the students have not been suspended from the law school itself contrary to media reports.

NLIU proctor Prof Rajiv Kumar Khare told us today that based on prima facie evidence against the six second-year male students, NLIU’s anti-ragging committee has decided to only disallow them from using the hostel pending the committee’s investigation into the complaint.

Khare said that while several other students were named in the complaints, the committee suspects that these six students may have been involved in acts of ragging although there was no conclusive finding on the matter yet.

TOI had misreported this development to say that the six students had been “suspended and barred from this hostel”, which Bar & Bench had re-reported.

NLIU has taken this action while investigating complaints of ragging that were registered with the University Grants Commission (UGC), purportedly by first year LLB students of the law school against their seniors.

The complaints had been made anonymously via the UGC's online complaints portal.
