He said the batch of students who were generally controlled by a group of senior students by ragging them. The virus spread also was experienced due to irrational activities by the senior student group, he said.

The senior veterinary medicine students' indecent behaviour and going against the COVID health guidelines caused the spreading the virus, the official said.

"The senior students reported to have warned the newcomers who were with COVID symptoms not to go to hospitals for treatment and to remain the in the campus. As a result of this, the virus spread among the whole batch and the university staff," he said.

The entire batch of students has been suspended, including those who did not involve in the incident. It was reported that those who were involved in the ragging attached to the university students' union.

The incident had taken place during the previous month. However the senior official did not reveal his identity.

    It is time to get rid of politics and unions from campuses. The leader of this cult should be given a harsh panishment.

    This is while they are opposing private universities. Private or public there should be a place for students to learn. Since public universities are used to create JVP cadres it is natural that we need private uni where students will actually learn.

    A very simple solution! Get then to pay 1000/- per subject a month. Half the batch will drop off and will make room for another batch to join!

    This is a very poorly written article. The grammatical errors make this a very difficult read..
