Patiala: Taking a stringent action against the president of the non-teaching employees union Gurwinder Singh Babbi for his act of hooliganism, Punjabi university authorities have recommended suspension and his immediate transfer from the university campus.

Babbi was accused of manhandling JS Khamba, head of the mechanical engineering department, on Thursday, following which Khamba filed a written complaint with the university registrar against Babbi.
The university had constituted a high-level 10-member committee under the chairmanship of the Dean, academic affairs, AS Chawla, to inquire into the matter on Friday morning.

The teaching faculty of all departments gathered outside the office of the vice-chancellor and staged a protest demanding strict action against Babbi. Several non-teaching employees also joined their protest.
It may be recalled that this is not for the first time that Babbi has been accused of such things as, earlier this year, he was accused of thrashing an health officer of the university.

Sources in the university revealed that besides recommendation of suspension, the committee had also recommend his shifting from the campus to the regional centre at Rampura Phul.

The authorities have also recommended ban on his entry into the university premises, added a source.
As per available information, Khamba and Babbi were at loggerheads after the former objected to the promotion of Sandeep Sharma, a workshop attendant, in his department. Sharma was also a member of the executive committee of the non-teaching employees union.

Reluctant to give details of recommendations, registrar Davinder Singh said they have proposed some more recommendations and placed the file before vice-chancellor Dr Jaspal Singh, who was not available on Friday.

"The recommendations will be implemented, once the vice-chancellor gave its consent", Singh said.
However, teachers have also formed a 21-member joint action committee, which has decided to hold protest on Monday in front of the V-C's office.
