A university fraternity is under investigation over accusations that new members were given date rape drugs and taught how to use them on female students.

New members at the University of Missouri’s Delta Upsilon fraternity were handed three pills and told to drug women to have sex with them, it has been alleged.

The students were required to complete the act as part of the fraternity’s sick initiation process, the accusations state.

Fox 2 St Louis reported that Ellen Eardley, the assistant vice chancellor of the Office for Civil Rights and Title IX at the university, detailed the shocking accusations in a letter to the fraternity.

Active members of Delta Upsilon fraternity allegedly provided each new member with three pills and instructed them to drug women for the purpose of incapacitating them prior to engaging in sexual activity.

It has been alleged that new members are required to engage in such conduct in order to complete the initiation process.

In a police report, a young woman said she believes she was drugged at a Delta Upsilon party where she had been drinking alcohol.

The fraternity is already suspended at the university over allegations of using racial slurs.

Delta Upsilon has issued a strong denial of the claims.

Justin Kirk, national Delta Upsilon executive director, told the St Louis Post-Dispatch: ‘The allegations that fraternity associate members received pills to be used to incapacitate and rape women were rumours found to be unsubstantiated by the university.

‘No formal charges were filed against the chapter. Such rumors are disgusting and egregious.’

A university spokesperson confirmed the fraternity is being investigated.
