The incident came to light on August 17 after the video went viral on Facebook and WhatsApp. The warden can be heard shouting “kete mark rakhichhu (how much have you scored)” in the video.
“The students’ parents had asked the warden to review their performance only, but he vented his frustration over their poor performance on them,” said college principal Sudhansu Sekhar Moharana.
“This is a condemnable incident. It’s absolutely awful. Though I am yet to get a complaint from the parents, I terminated the warden from service the moment I saw the video,” he said.
The college has lodged an FIR against the warden, the principal added.
