The first year Tamil engineering student of Peradeniya University who had a kidney failure recently following severe ragging by senior students died last night in a hospital in Colombo.
Seven senior students of the engineering faculty of the university were taken into custody by the Kandy Police in connection with this ragging incident.
Meanwhile a Sinhala girl -also a first year student - in the University of Ruhunu committed suicide this week as she was unable to bear ragging by her senior students.
