A Day of Sorrow

TUPians mourn on Hazing Victim’s Death


IN SYMPATHY for the death of the hazing victim, Clark Anson Silverio, the University Student Government made a call to students to wear black this Wednesday, March 8.

     The second year Mechanical Engineering student was declared dead on arrival at the Manila Sanitarium Hospital in Pasay City last March 3. Hazing injuries mostly on his thighs, which cause hematoma and severe contusions, was the cause of his death, according to initial police report.

     The incident happened in a warehouse on Guatemala Street in Barangay San Isidro, Makati morning of March 3. According to report, Silverio had been bought to the hospital by four teenagers who said that they had found him unconscious, possibly drunk, and lying on the street. Edmar Gipan, one of those who brought the victim to the hospital, was picked up by the police for investigation.

     A witness, the warehouse caretaker, told the police that it was for the fourth time that a group of boys and girls went there to hold initiation rites. “After I finished cleaning, I saw that a group of teens were (hitting) others or heard (some people) shouting, groaning, screaming and crying,” the witness told the police in her statement.

     Meanwhile, initial investigations showed that members of an underground fraternity in the campus, known as Tau Gamma Phi was the suspect behind the case. At presstime, twenty students were under investigation in relation with the killing. On the other hand, the TUP administration is getting into deeper investigation on Silverio’s death.
