Cuttack: Four students of Ravenshaw University were suspended on Friday for eve-teasing a girl student.
The Students are Debapriya Parida, Asish Choudhury, Ritesh Kumar and Swon Acharya, all second year Information Technology Management (ITM) students.
While Choudhury has been suspended for one year, Parida, Acharya and Ritesh Kumar have been suspended for six months, said Ravenshaw University Registrar Maheswar Agasti.
Agasti said about two months back, the four boarders of East Hostel had passed lewd comments at a girl student following which the victim had lodged written complaint with the Vice-Chancellor Praksh Chandra Sarangi. The VC forwarded the case to Gender Sensitization Committee Against Sexual Harassment (GSCASH) for a probe.
The committee submitted its inquiry report recently, basing on which the varsity authority suspended the four students, Agasti added. Meanwhile, protesting the suspension more than 40 ITM students staged dharna before the office of the VC. They were demanding authorities to reconsider and revoke the suspension order.
