GUWAHATI, July 14 - The members of the Kamrup (Metro) District Level Anti-Ragging Committee met at the office of the Deputy Commissioner here today during which a host of steps were proposed here today to prevent incidents of ragging in educational institutions and outside.
The meeting, attended by representatives of a number of colleges including Cotton College, B Borooah College, Arya Vidyapeeth College and Guwahati College, urged the district administration to keep a tab on the private hostels running in a haphazard manner in the city. The members urged the administration to facilitate visit of the members of the district level anti-ragging committee along with a designated police officer to all the colleges so that the message is sent across loud and clear before the start of the session.
The members also proposed setting up of a toll free helpline number and an email address where victims can lodge complaint without making their name public. The meeting, chaired by M Saikia, Additional Deputy Commissioner, also discussed a range of challenges that lie before the colleges and educational institutions while trying to contain acts of ragging.
