University of Hyderabad  - Sakshi Post

The University of Hyderabad (UoH) has suspended ten students from the academic programme for preventing wardens from discharging their duty. They have also been suspended from the university hostel.

On November 3, a surprise check by wardens to weed out unauthorised people led to heckling of the officials, including physical threats. The wardens had to be moved out of the hostel premises only with the help of police. These students were asked to depose before a committee set up to inquire into the incident that occurred in a mens' hostel on the campus on November 3 night.

"The Inquiry Committee has held students guilty on the charges of unauthorised entry of outsiders into the hostel room, refusal to show the identity cards, switching off the lights, sloganeering against the wardens, physical intimidation, verbal assault, preventing officials from delivering their duties etc," a UoH release said.

Three students were found guilty of grave charges and were suspended for two years from the academic programmes and the hostel, while seven others were found guilty for indulging in related acts of stopping the wardens and security staff from discharging their duties. They have been suspended for six months.

The committee also appreciated efforts of some boarders for their efforts in defusing the situation and they were issued the Letters of Appreciation.
