The National Law Institute University (NLIU), Bhopal on Saturday suspended six second year students and expelled them from the hostel till the completion of an inquiry into ragging complaints which were lodged with the National Anti-Ragging Helpline (NARH) by the victims.

Juniors were allegedly forced to watch porn clips and even imitate the acts.

In the complaints to NARH against 14 senior students of NLIU , some first year students alleged that senior students forced them to watch porn clips, simulate sex with trees and dance to vulgar tunes earlier this month.

NLIU director SS Singh said the matter was being probed by anti-ragging committee of the institute.

“Out of 14 students, six have been identified and suspended from the hostel till filing of final report by anti-ragging committee. If NARH is not satisfied with the punishment, they can enhance it,” said the director.

The institute is still trying to get the information about the complainants who had approached the NARH.

Earlier, Raj Kachroo, the founder of University Grants Commission-recognised NARH, had criticized the institute’s ‘lackadaisical’ attitude and also slammed the institute’s administration for insisting that the identity of the complainants be disclosed to enable it to take action on the complaints.

Kachroo’s 19-year-old son Aman, a first-year student at a medical college in Himachal Pradesh, was persistently ragged and beaten to death by his seniors in March 2009, prompting him to open the helpline.
