5 students of JNU rusticated, including union president
Five students of JNU, including the students union president, were today rusticated by the varsity authorities for their "defiant act" of stalling the sale of prospectus in the campus.
Apart from president Sandeep Singh, other rusticated students are Shephalika Shekhar, vice president of the students union, Mobeen Alam, JNUSU joint secretary, Roshan Kishore and Renu Singh.
While Singh has been declared out of bounds for two years, the other students have been declared out of bound with immediate effect for one year.
The action was taken after the students tried to stop the sale of prospectus in the campus.
"The sale counter was not allowed to function the whole day despite an appeal by Dean of Students requesting them not to disrupt the normal functioning of the admission branch," the varsity said in a statement.
"This act of defiance and use of force prompted the issuing of show cause notices to seek an explanation for their serious act of indiscipline and misconduct. The erring students have failed to provide any satisfactory response to the show cause notices. The Chief Proctor's Office unfortunately was left with no option but to take disciplinary action by rusticating some of them," the statement said.
