KOLKATA: The Executive Council of the Jadavpur University on Tuesday took up the report of the internal inquiry committee that recommended the expulsion of four students for their alleged role in the ragging of a 17-year-old boy that led to his death, officials said.

It will be made known later if the recommendations have been accepted," a JU official told PTI. The report also recommended the suspension of several students.
