Cuttack: Authorities of Ravenshaw University on Wednesday expelled two senior students from their respective hostels for the rest of the current academic session in connection with a ragging case.
The expelled students, Akash Patnaik and Subhrajit Roy, were asked to leave the Lalitgiri Hostel with immediate effect. However, they could continue their studies staying outside of the campus.
Akash and Subhrajit were also asked to deposit Rs 5000 each within seven days as fine.
The action was taken in compliance with the policy of zero tolerance on ragging in the University, a senior official of the institution said.

An FIR was also registered at the Malgodam Police station here in that connection.
