    Very good, not only suspending ban them stepping into the University again permanently. These people should be thought a good lesson now. Are they have come to study and be graduated or playing hell? How much trouble their parents would have under-gone to make these people to enter the University? No. mercy should be shown to them.

    They should not only be suspended by sacked, wasting public money in meaningless initiations.... Clearly our universities selecting processes chooses the "cream" of society. Free education is free to the receiver but not to the tax payer.

    This is a fine step to control the inferiority complex of seniors and some political catchers.

    Even after a death of a student last month in the campus premises these heinous act has continued. Really this is mental sickness among seniors the cycle must be broken. Counselling must be provided to seniors to come out of this degrading ragging mentality.

    Mothers have to walk the streets to earn money to send these donkeys to the university. I was at Peradeniya too .most raggers come from low class families

    After one youth committing suicide these brutes have not learnt a lesson. They are not human beings. But Cannibal. The authorities should remove them totally from the university.

    Today ragging is based on jealousy

    most raggers can not speak two words of English.

    This is a Big Lie. do not try to show your jealous through your comments. those who criticize university students are the ones who couldn't enter university. 3rd class people. this is a false news and 33 students are not suspended ....

    sobers Friday, 28 February 2014 08:35 AM

    They must be sacked, so that the new entries will be disciplined and a decent society will be established.
