The brother of a University of Nebraska-Lincoln student who killed himself has sued the fraternity he was pledging claiming he was subject to hazing for weeks leading to his death.
Kam Rokon, whose 18-year-old brother Rahat Hassan Jalil died in 2019, has sued the school's Lambda Phi Epsilon chapter claiming he was forced to stand in the cold all night and urinate on other pledges. Jalil took his life on January 16, 2019, just two days after he was finally sworn into the fraternity.
