UGC seeks second detailed report
Meanwhile, the UGC had once again sent a notice to JU asking them to submit the action taken by the varsity on ragging along with records. According to sources, the varsity had earlier submitted a 'generic' report on the death of the first year student allegedly due to ragging. Registrar of the Jadavpur University Snehamanju Basu said that the notice has been sent to the Dean of the Students as records are kept in that office. "The deadline is yet to get over and we will give our reply. The final report will be sent soon," said Basu.
Addressing the media, the Registrar of the University also added, "CCTV will be installed at strategic points in the university campus. Individuals entering the campus between 8pm-7am shall produce university ID cards. Those without university ID card will produce other valid identity card and enter details of the person he/she is going to meet in the register at the university gate. Vehicles must have JU sticker, those without sticker will have to provide vehicle and driver details. Use of narcotics, substance or other illegal substances prohibited on campus."
