Four months after a student leader was allegedly found in an objectionable position with two girls in the office of the University Department Student Council (UDSC) on the University of Mumbai's Kalina campus, the varsity has decided to pardon him.
“Given that he is a student and that his career is at stake, we have decided to pardon him with a strict warning. We will be asking him to give us a written apology that such incidents will not be repeated,” said Vice Chancellor Vijay Khole, adding that the student had accepted his mistake.
The four-member inquiry committee tabled its report at last week’s management council meeting.
It was on April 1 that UDSC General Secretary Satyajeet Deshpande was caught getting intimate with a fellow student in the students’ council office.
The three students stay in the university campus hostel and are postgraduate students in the computer science department.
As per university rules, the council office is open for use till 6 pm. An extension of time calls for special permission from university officials.
Meanwhile, the committee has also advised the university with reference to the guidelines for the use of university facilities.
“Increasing internal security on campus is being looked into. We are working towards introducing new guidelines for usage of common facilities for boys and girls,” said Khole.
