Twenty-eight students were expelled from a college in Varanasi for ragging their juniors and indulging in violence in September.

The decision was taken by the anti-ragging committee of the Uday Pratap Autonomous college here.

Notices were served to the students yesterday asking them to take their transfer certificate from the college office by November 15, Gulab Singh, the spokesman of the college said.

Two of the students, who were charged with instigating the violence, Jang Bahadur Singh and Piyush Singh, have been expelled for life time while 13 students, who participated in violent incidents, have been expelled for two academic sessions- 2009-2010 and 2010-2011.
