Meanwhile,the student told The Sunday Express that the college was unhappy as he has been raising issues such as lack of infrastructure and staff indulging in “illegal activities”.He was also suspended from the college on 13th November 2017 for “disruption of academic environment”.

“Since then, he has been indulging in acts of indiscipline and trying to disrupt the college atmosphere. Initially, it was just on social media. He then made baseless allegations of corruption against the staff. We had never told him that he would not be able to write the exam, we wanted him to submit an undertaking on his attendance shortage,” said Manoj Sinha,Principal of Aryabhatta College saying that the student is against college authorities since he was denied permission to fight DUSU polls over low attendance.
