Nineteen college students who reportedly took part in fraternity hazing activities were arrested in Pototan, Iloilo.
According to a report on Unang Balita on Wednesday, the police also have in their custody two of the fraternity's "master initiators."
Fresh bruises were seen on some of the students' bodies.
Authorities also recovered three paddles believed to be used in the hazing.
The students, who are facing raps for violating the Anti-Hazing Law, had yet to issue statements as of the report. —Margaret Claire Layug/KBK, GMA News
