Hyderabad: A show-cause notice has been issued to a University of Hyderabad (UoH) student for posting an abusive post on social media against professor K Laxminarayana. The senior professor is from Economics department.

Vice-Chancellor Prof. Appa Rao Podile said that they have zero tolerance for such behaviour against faculty and has referred the matter to the university’s Proctorial Board. The student belonged to ABVP unit and although the incident happened last semester, the matter was taken up now after the classes resumed.

"We fully expect all interactions among various sections of the university community to be conducted with mutual respect, dignity, and decorum. Redressal of any genuine grievances must be sought only through appropriate institutional channels provided for the purpose," an English daily quoted University's official spokesperson Prof. Vinod Pavarala as saying.
