Peradeniya student hospitalised after ragging

A first year student of the Peradeniya University who had undergone severe ragging, was warded at the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital by University Marshal’s officers yesterday.

The senior students involved in the ragging incident had taken the student to a private hospital to avoid an inquiry into the matter. The University Marshal’s officers who received this information had located the student and taken him to the Peradeniya hospital.

The first year student who is a resident of Diyathalawa, was returning to the university after the weekend, when three senior students had taken him to an abandoned area of the university and harassed him until he fell unconscious.

The senior students who had ragged the student had taken him to a private hospital in a three wheeler. They had pretended to be friends of the victim at the private hospital.

Peradeniya University authorities and the Peradeniya Police are investigating.
