Four students of Lucknow University have been suspended and FIRs lodged against them for allegedly ragging juniors and threatening them with dire consequences if they failed to obey their diktats.
Acting on a complaint of BA first year students, the LU Proctorial Board suspended the four second year students-- Mani Singh, Mritunjay Singh, Prem Singh and Bhanu Pratap and lodged FIRs against them on Tuesday, university sources said on Wednesday.
Juniors had alleged last week that the four used to assign them work with the threat that those who failed to do it would be made to urinate on heaters or singed with cigarette butts.
Both the accused and complainant are residents of Acharya Narendra Dev hostel of LU.
Though FIRs have been lodged against the accused, the university authorities have insitituted an inquiry to check the veracity of the charges, LU Proctor AN Singh said.
