HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A chapter of a service fraternity has been barred from Alabama A&M University by its national council because of hazing allegations.

News outlets report the National Council of Kappa Kappa Psi sent a letter to its members stating they are revoking the charter of the Iota Nu chapter at the university.

The letter says the revocation is a result of "hazing related" to the New Member Presentation Show. The nature of the hazing wasn't immediately released.

University Vice President of Communication Archie Tucker told WAFF-TV the school wasn't aware of any hazing reports.

The letter says all active members of the fraternity are expelled and there's a 20-year moratorium on any Kappa Kappa Psi chapters at the school.

Kappa Kappa Psi supports the university’s Marching Maroon and White band.
