HUA HIN: -- Five senior students at a famous Hua Hin university have apologized en masse to relatives of a transgender first year female student.

 

The five students forced the female student to undergo a hazing ritual in which her clothes were pulled up over her head almost to her breasts.

 

The incident was shared across social media causing much comment.

 

The head of the university's committee of investigation professor Phongphoom Sornchomkaew said it was a regrettable incident that brought shame on the university and severe distress to the student concerned and her family.

 

Yesterday the mother and father and elder sister of the victim came to hear the committee's findings. The five third and fourth year students presented garlands and graap-ed (prostrated themselves) in apology.

 

The apology was accepted,

 

But the university - that was not named by Sanook - didn't let the matter rest there.

 

All the students involved were suspended for one semester.
