HONG KONG: The University of Hong Kong's (HKU) St. John's College has expelled three students, suspended 19 and warned another over ragging incidents, including one where the lower half of a junior student's body was covered with wax.

The group of about 20 poured wax over the student's lower body on March 21, according to a now-deleted Facebook post, the South China Morning Post reported on Saturday.
The victim had been a candidate in a hall council election.
In a second incident at a yet-unidentified college, a man wearing a HKU jacket was seen hitting another man's head with his genitalia, in a video that went viral in early April.
The St. John's College dean Dr K.C. Wong, said in a statement Friday that "such actions, whether done under the pretext of 'sub-culture' or 'tradition', were unacceptable".
"Disciplinary action has been taken towards all students involved. Our tutor team will also provide counselling and support to those in need," he said in a letter published on Facebook on Saturday by the college.
Dr Wong added that ragging "has no place in St. John's", and issued a warning to anyone considering ragging in future.
"For students or alumni who are still pondering whether some form of ragging may be justified as a form of socialisation into the so-called 'sub culture' or 'tradition', the College's unequivocal position towards this incident, together with the consequences that the College as a whole has to bear as a result of this incident, should remove any doubt," he said.
The college's students' association on Saturday also issued a statement on the incident, saying that the students agree "that the ragging was an unbecoming conduct that must be reprimanded". – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
