Two Delhi University students, accused of being involved in an incident of ragging, were on Monday expelled from their college after the institute's disciplinary committee decided to act tough against them.
The disciplinary committee of the Kirori Mal College in a unanimous decision expelled the two final-year students besides rusticating another involved in the incident, a day after a first year BSc student Ashutosh alleged that he was ragged in the hostel.
The expelled students, Akshay Chaudhary and Hani Mohammad, belong to Bulandshahar of Uttar Pradesh. While Hani was a final year student of Physical Science, Chaudhary was a student of Computer Science.
A third student, who had directed the victim to the room where he was allegedly confronted by the seniors, also stands rusticated, the member said, but added that the student was yet to be identified.
Ashutosh alleged that the two ragged him in a hostel of the college for about 30 minutes last evening.
"It was a serious case and tough action was required to set an example," College Principal Bhim Sen Singh said. He said the decision was taken with a heavy heart as it would spoil their careers but it would set an example that no one would get away with such things.
