Kirori Mal College has issued show cause notice to 11 students for protesting outside Maurice Nagar Police Station on the night of 19th August 2017 without informing the hostel warden.Studens claim that the warden did not act after a fight broke out in the hostel after the hostel election.
The 11 students have alleged discrimination on the part of college authorities,claiming that out of 50-60 students who were present at the police station,only 11 have been served notice. The students have been asked to explain: ‚ÄúWhy should your admission to the hostel not be terminated for your misconduct? The enquiry committee will look into the matter and recommend necessary action.‚Äù
‚ÄúAfter a fight broke out between two student groups, we called our warden. He said he was out and would not be able to be address the issue that very moment. So we went to the police demanding action.‚Äù a student told Indian Express.
‚ÄúStudents from UP and Bihar are the ones who have been served notice. There were people from other places at the station as well. If this is not discrimination, what is it?‚Äù alleged the recently elected hostel President.
‚ÄúThey did not approach the authorities and instead went to the police which affects the image of the college. I have told them that if there are more students, they should name them before the proctorial committee. All will be treated equally.‚Äù¬†said KMC Principal.
