Mysuru, January 18:- The syndicate of University of Mysore has given its consent to suspend the students from the university hostel who took part in the protest against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) held at the University of Mysore recently.
During the syndicate meeting of the university held in the presence of vice-chancellor Prof G Hemanth Kumar at the Crawford Hall on Friday, the decision to suspend the students from the hostel was taken. The syndicate has decided to form a committee to identify illegal residents of hostels and eject them.
The protest organised by the research scholars of the UoM was in news for the wrong reasons as a woman was seen displaying ‘free Kashmir’ placard during the protest. Police questioned the woman displaying the placard and the organisers of the protest.
Syndicate member EC Ningaraj Gowda urged the UoM to immediately suspend the students who took part in the protest from the hostel. He said that the placard row has been a national issue and thus defamed the UoM. He said that those who reside in the hostels illegally are causing all the troubles and urged the authorities to eject them immediately.
The syndicate agreed to form a committee to identify the illegal residents of the university hostels and suspend them too.
After the meeting, vice-chancellor Prof G Hemanth Kumar said that the syndicate meeting favoured taking action against the students who took part in the protest. He said that the action will be taken according to the report given by the committee. He clarified that no action has been planned as of now. (MR/KS).
