JNU panel that was constituted to investigate the 9 February incidents on the campus has recommended expulsion for Kanhaiya Kumar and four others from the university, reports news agency PTI.
Among the students recommended to be rusticated are Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya and two other students for their alleged role in a controversial event in February at which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.
The panel had submitted its report last week on Friday.
He had said, “They told us the suspension does not stand after midnight Friday, as the final report has been submitted. We told them that the time of the suspension is over but you will have to give the rationale behind suspending students. They said they have got the report and they will read it and announce the action that has to be taken on the basis of it next week.”
Quoting a university statement the news agency IANS reported, “the high-level inquiry committee constituted by the vice chancellor to inquire into the incident on 9 February on the JNU campus has submitted a unanimous report, as per which some students have been found to have violated the university’s rules and norms.”
The High Court had later granted the JNU students’ union leader an interim bail for six months.
Meanwhile, ANI has reported that the JNU Professor Amita Singh, who allegedly called Muslim and Dalit teachers anti-nationals, has now been issued a notice by the university.
