They include alumni as well as students. Several other interrogations are also underway. The university authorities are under police scanner. Questions are being raised about how the ragging has been going on for days, avoiding everyone’s attention.  Dean of Students Rajat Roy and Registrar Snehamanju Basu have been summoned for the purpose of investigation. A questionnaire has also been prepared on what exactly will be asked. Police wanted to know why the Dean of Students did not rush to the spot despite a call on the night of the incident. Why was it not used despite having an ambulance in the university? Why was the injured student taken to the hospital in a yellow taxi?Why didn’t the university authorities know earlier that the alumni and new students were in the hostel together? Why didn’t the registrar know about the incident earlier? Investigators hope that if all these questions are answered, the investigation will gain further momentum.
