JNU panel finds 21 students guilty of violating rules

New Delhi, March 14 (IANS) A high-level inquiry committee, constituted by the Jawaharlal Nehru University to investigate the February 9 happenings on the campus, on Monday found 21 students guilty of violating rules and norms in the JNU.

“The high-level inquiry committee constituted by the vice chancellor to inquire into the incident on February 9 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 university administration said in a statement here.

“There are standards and provisions in the university rules to take action in such cases. The high-level inquiry committee’s recommendations are based on the rules of discipline and proper conduct in the JNU,” the statement said.

“The vice chancellor has apprised the Dean’s Committee of the summary of the inquiry committee recommendations. The office of the Chief Proctor will take further action by issuing show cause notices to the students found violating rules and norms of the university,” it said.

The committee was set up on February 10, initially with three members. Later, two more members were added.

The university had suspended JNU Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar, JNUSU general secretary Rama Naga, Anant Prakash Narayan, Anirban Bhattacharya, Ashutosh, Umar Khalid, Ashwarya Adhikari and Shwetha Raj on February 12.

Last week, the administration revoked the suspension of all eight students after the committee submitted its report on the February 9 incident on the campus wherein anti-national slogans were raised.
