Campus Violence: 7 Students Of Govt Engineering College In Berhampur Suspended

Berhampur: Following the August 1 clash, seven students of Parala Maharaja Engineering College here have been suspended for two weeks to one year.

Four sixth-semester students have been suspended from the college for a year, while two more of the same batch have been debarred from all academic activities for two months and two weeks respectively. A fourth-semester student has also been suspended for two weeks, while another of his batch has been barred from entering the hostel for two months.

A second-year student was injured in the scuffle, sources said.

The decision was taken by the disciplinary committee of the government-run institute on Saturday. “The 16-member disciplinary committee spoke to some students and examined the footage of CCTVs installed on the campus before suspending the student,” principal Ranjan Kumar Swain told TOI.

The suspended students, however, alleged that it was an arbitrary decision taken without considering the view of both sides.
