Hindu College has sent show cause notices to 15 students for “deliberately locking all gates of the college during office hours”, leaving the principal and staff “stranded”, on 10th August 2017.

Students were protesting against the high fee of the women’s hostel,which is currently Rs 90,000 per annum. “At 4.30 pm on August 10, you were found indulging in the act of deliberately locking all the gates of the college building from outside during office hours, thereby leaving several staff members and the principal stranded for several hours. You are required to show cause why disciplinary action should not be initiated for your gross misconduct. Your reply to the notice should be submitted to the AO office by Saturday, August 12, 2 pm,” said the notice signed by Principal Anju Srivastava.

“We were stranded for about three hours.Protests have been going on and we have no problem with it. But they can’t hold the college in such a situation. We have certain rules and regulations. If they follow them, it’s fine. If they violate it, obviously the disciplinary committee will take action.” said Hindu College Principal.

“The college said officials were stranded for hours, but nothing like that happened. We were just protesting against the hostel fee hike. In fact, gates were locked to prevent us from going inside” said Saurabh Sagar,one of the 15 students.
