The above-mentioned faculty members stand accused of using statements such as, “Tujhe toh next semester dekh lunga main,” Viva mai kaise pass hoge, we will see,” among many others. Moreover, they have been attributed of interfering in the External viva voce of the students and influencing the External examiner into poorly grading the examinees with phrases like, “Isko kuch nahi aata, yeh kya batayegi,” “Ye padhenge Computer Science,” etc. The students, who were members of extra-curricular societies in the college, have reported similar incidents of being harassed through obscene words and aggressive, verbal threats of low grades in the Internal Assessments.
