LAWRENCE, Kansas (AP) – A University of Kansas fraternity will remain on interim suspension as the school continues an investigation of alleged sexual assaults occurring at the house.

Kappa Sigma had asked the university to remove it from suspension, arguing that it did not represent a threat. University and fraternity representatives met Nov. 24 to discuss the request.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports university procedures require a decision within 10 business days of the meeting. But the university said Wednesday that deadline was extended and Kappa Sigma’s interim suspension will continue indefinitely.

The suspension was imposed Sept. 30 after the university received allegations of sexual assault during a party at the fraternity the previous weekend.

Lawrence police are conducting a separate investigation. A spokesman said Wednesday no arrests have been made.
