A Supreme Court lawyer sent legal notice to The University Grant Commission (UGC) and concerned others to stop the ragging and take action against the ragging in the country’s all universities.
Supreme Court lawyer Ishrat Hasan sent the notice via the registry mail yesterday, reports Banglanews24.com.
He sent the notice to Home Secretary, Education Secretary and Chairman of the University Grants Commission.
The notice states that every university should take the necessary steps within seven days to form an Anti-Ragging Committee and ragging squad for monitoring to constant support for students.
Later, lawyer Ishrat Hassan told the media, “Young men came to university with many dreams, but became victim of ragging by seniors. Seniors make newcomers punished, beat with rods, drown in water, jump from tall buildings, give cigarette fires to body, climbing trees, walk through corners of buildings etc.
There are also various types of psychological abuse such as scorn, surveillance and regular interrogation.
Legal notice has been sent to stop this ragging, he said.
