NUJS suspension notice of eight students

NUJS Kolkata has suspended three male students, including two in their final year of the LLB, from the law school, and five male students from the NUJS hostels, for an alleged brawl that had broken out on campus last month. The suspension is effective for one semester.

Correction 18:45: We have been informed that the incident was not of ragging but an allegation of a brawl between students during an event that had resulted in injuries.

The law school notified this order on 11 October after an inquiry initiated on 25 September noted that “very serious acts of physical violence [were] committed by [the accused] students” on the intervening night of 19 September and 20 September on campus resulting in a “complete breakdown of discipline and serious threat to safety of students with multiple rounds of scuffle and assault”.

The law school notified the following penalties from the committee

  • Three students, including two final year LLB students, were suspended from the university for the winter semester this year. The two final year students will be allowed to complete their 10th semester next year
  • Four students, including one LLM student, were suspended from the hostel for the winter semester this year
  • These seven students suspended from the hostels and the university were also all debarred from all student societies and extra curricular activities for varied periods
  • One student was suspended from the hostel for December 2018
  • One student was reprimanded for his “abusive post on Facebook” and for his “role in roaming wsith sticks on the balcony of the boys hostel”.
