10-sec summaryIn the dimly lit corridors of Kolkata's Jadavpur University Main Hostel, a horrifying incident unfolded on the evening of August 9th. Ragging, once considered a harmless initiation ritual, has once again reared its ugly head in an educational institution. A 17-year-old student, Swapnodeep Kundu, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Bengali Literature, tragically lost his life in a horrifying incident after being subjected to extreme humiliation and harassment by his seniors. This incident raises crucial questions about the prevalence of ragging, institutional negligence, mental health support, and the need for sensitization programs in educational institutions.
As fearless and blunt opinion writers at Peepoye Network, we believe it is our moral responsibility to shed light on this incident and demand justice for Swapnodeep Kundu.
