Condemning the ragging incident in Dibrugarh University where the student was grievously hurt, Assam Education Minister Dr Ranoj Pegu on Monday asked the Dibrugarh University authority and police to take strong action against the culprits."We will not tolerate such activities. I am also asking university authorities to be vigilant and take prompt action whenever any attempt of ragging is reported. Ex-students should not be allowed to stay in hostels," the Assam Education Minister had said.

Meanwhile, Dibrugarh district police have apprehended three persons for allegedly ragging juniors at the Dibrugarh University.
