Visva-Bharati University suspends four students for stripping, photographing junior
The renowned varsity has also set up a special committee to look into the matter.

Shantiniketan: The prestigious Visva Bharati University in West Bengal has suspended four of its students after a girl student alleged that her seniors ragged and stripped her.

The Visva Bharati university authorities today lodged a police complaint against four persons, including three students, in connection with the alleged sexual harassment of a girl student.

Bolpur Sub-divisional Police Officer Suryaprasad Yadav said the university lodged the complaint against three Kala Bhavan (school of fine arts) students and "an unknown outsider". "We have initiated investigation after receiving the complaint," Yadav said.

The Sikkimese girl, a first year student of Kala Bhavan, lodged a written complaint against the three students of her department that they had sexually harassed her and clicked some photographs with their mobile phones and threatened her to blackmail with those.

Mousumi Bhattacharya, Chairperson of the Internal Complaint Committee Against Sexual Harassment, yesterday said proceedings have been started to probe the complaint. "We shall complete the investigation and submit report to the concerned authority as early as possible," she said.

The girl's father met Vice-Chancellor Susanta Datta Gupta yesterday and demanded steps against the culprits. After the meeting, the girl and her father were taken to Bolpur railway station in a university car from where they left for Kolkata by the Saraighat Express.
