Anantapur: The menace of ragging continues even in what are supposed to be prestigious educational institutions like JNTU of the state.
An incident of students forcibly taking some freshers to their hostel and making them follow their instructions while forcing them to stand half-naked on Friday night had come to light on Saturday.
Following this, the College Academic Council of Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) suspended 18 students for ragging juniors.
