Anti-ragging, Hon High Court directions
In pursuance of the direction from the Honorable High Court of Kerala, the Director of collegiate Education has communicated to the Principals of all colleges in the State that the incidents of ragging or any such indecent behavior by any student to the fellow students involving physical or mental assault should be treated not as merely a problem of academic discipline, but as a criminal offence, punishable under the provision of the Criminal Procedure Code, and that any laxity in dealing with such cases sternly by the head of the institution would be considered a serious lapse on their part. Therefore all senior students are informed that any act of vandalism being committed under the pretext of ragging will not be tolerated at any cost. Those who indulge in such acts ignoring this warning would have to face drastic punishments including their summary dismissal from the rolls and even recommendation for police action. Students are strictly warned that there would be no more warning in the manner.
