The Jadavpur University authorities on Friday held a meeting with various stakeholders, including faculty members and students, in the wake of the death of a first-year student who fell from the second-floor balcony of a hostel on August 9 after he was allegedly subjected to ragging by his seniors.
In the meeting presided over by Vice-Chancellor (Officiating) Buddhadev Sau, the faculty members shared proposals to deal with the menace of ragging. The authorities, however, could not reach a consensus as to where to install CCTV cameras and whether to rope in ex-servicemen to handle security on the campus.
The faculty members’ organisation, Jadavpur University Teachers Association (JUTA), proposed to appoint a full-time officer at night and start a 24-hour helpline to prevent ragging on the campus.
The association, however, maintained that the security on the campus should not be handled by ex-army men.
JUTA general secretary Parthapratim Roy said, “A full-time officer should be appointed to look urgently into issues related to ragging and other security-related problems during the night.” “We do not agree on the handling of security of the university by ex-servicemen. CCTV cameras should be installed at strategic locations and there should not be any problem with that,” said Roy.
JU Registrar Snehamanju Basu said, “We want to follow the UGC guidelines. Students have some doubts regarding the locations of installing CCTV cameras and monitoring them. They just want that the matter be discussed with them before taking a final decision on it. A tender has been floated for this. It will not take more than 15 days to get it done.”
