NORTHRIDGE, Calif. (AP) - Cal State Northridge has temporarily banned its 54 fraternities and sororities from recruitment and pledging activities for new members as it investigates another possible hazing incident.

The Los Angeles Times reports Sunday that the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity is under investigation after a complaint from a pledge who expressed concerns a week ago about activities.

A campus spokeswoman says no one was injured but didn't release details. The ban is expected to last until the spring.

A CSUN student died July 1 during a rigorous Pi Kappa Phi fraternity hike in very hot weather in the Angeles National Forest.

School administrators concluded it was a hazing incident and the fraternity's CSUN chapter was shut down.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is conducting a criminal investigation into the death.
