THE Rajamangala University of Technology Isan today (Mar. 26) ordered the expulsion of 15 senior students over the hazing to death of a freshman, INN News said.
Associate Professor Dr. Kosit Sriputhon, the president of Rajamangala University of Technology Isan, said an investigation into the death of Mr. Phatsayot Cholapakdee, or Nong Prem, 19, a first-year vocational student in the mechanical branch, by the administrative committee led to the expulsion of the 15 second-year vocational students.
They were found to have planned, ordered and controlled the hazing activities where freshmen were beaten with sticks, punched and kicked leading to the death of one of them.
Another 10 second-year vocational students were punished by having their examination result scrapped with their transcript to be stamped W or withdrawal.
They were found to have forced freshmen to take their clothes off, crouch, crawl and push their head on the ground leading to injuries.
The remaining five second-year vocational students will have 10 behavioural points deducted and their parents notified.
They were faulted for knowing about the planning and carrying out the hazing activities and not alerting their professors to put a stop to them.
Also punished were 37 first-year students who had 10 behavioural points deducted and their parents notified.
They were faulted for being involved and contributing to unwanted activists and participating in them.
The students are allowed to file an appeal within 15 days.
