A NUMBER of Class X and XII students of Shyam Manohar Mishra Inter College at Bakshi Ka Talab went on rampage inside the college premises on Thursday. They alleged that the college management had withheld their admit cards and was demanding money. This irked the agitated students who resorted to violence. However, later, the college succumbed to pressure and distributed admit cards to the examinees.

On Wednesday afternoon, about 100 students of Shyam Manohar Mishra Inter College reached the college and demanded their admit cards that had been “withheld by the college management”. However, the college management told HT Lucknow Live that the admit cards had not been withheld and these students had been instigated by teachers with a malafide intent.

College deputy manager Sarnam Singh said, “Those students who had either failed in the Pre-Board examination or had not taken the Pre-Boards, were asked to bring their parents to discuss their progress with the teachers. We’re concerned about the future of our students and wanted to inform their parents that their wards had not fared well in the Pre-Boards. That is all.”

“Their admit cards were never withheld. In fact, only 70 students had been asked to call their parents, but some teachers, whom thecollege had reprimanded, was instigating students to create problems. These teachers, along with students, had alleged that the college was demanding money for the admit cards,” said Singh.

However, the students alleged that college management had asked them to buy tickets in bulk for a charity show else their admit cards would be withheld. This had irked students who even damaged Singh’s vehicle. However, Singh denied any such “forcible directive”.

Meanwhile, District Inspector of School Vikas Srivastava said he had no idea about any such incident as nobody had registered a complaint at his office.
