Kolkata: Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute (SRFTI) has rusticated a student after finding him guilty of ragging a fresher.

The incident of ragging took place on 5 July night during a ‘rave-up party’ that the students had organised on the campus. The victim fresher lodged a complaint with the institute authority the very next day, i.e. 6 July.

The complaint was, in turn, referred to the anti-ragging committee of the institute. During the investigation, the panel found concrete evidence establishing the allegation against a final year student, while four others acted as his accomplices.

Acting on this, SRFTI authority filed an FIR against all the five students at the Panchasayar police station. The prime accused was rusticated yesterday and asked to vacate the institute hostel with immediate effect.
