Kolkata (August 12,2023) :  Police have arrested a former Jadavpur University student in connection with the death of Swapnadwip Kundu, a first-year student of the university. Kundu was found dead in the undercroft of the main hostel on Thursday morning, with multiple injuries. The arrested student, Sourav Mondal, is a resident of the hostel. He is accused of beating Kundu to death after a verbal altercation. Mondal has denied the allegations, but police say they have enough evidence to charge him with murder.

Kundu's death has sparked protests from students and teachers at Jadavpur University. They have demanded that the university take action against the perpetrators and ensure the safety of all students. The university has suspended Mondal and ordered an inquiry into the incident. The vice-chancellor has also met with Kundu's family and assured them that justice will be served.

The case is still under investigation, but police say they are confident of a speedy resolution. They have appealed to anyone with information about the incident to come forward. In the meantime, the university has increased security on campus and is providing counselling to students. They have also set up a helpline for students who need support. Kundu's death is a tragedy and a reminder of the dangers of ragging. It is important that universities take steps to prevent such incidents from happening in the future.
