Ragging torture chamber at Dehiwala to be probed Featured

The higher education ministry has received information about ragging torture chambers that operate in rented houses in close vicinity to universities.

Minister Wijedasa Rajapakshe says one such place at Dehiwala will be investigated.

A politician has covered it up despite several complaints lodged with the police, as he used it to torture his opponents.

According to minister Rajapakshe, 1,352 students had abandoned universities due to ragging in in the past two years.

He adds that entire society has a responsibility to look after the 91,600-strong university student community.
