3-member MIT panel to counter menace

The Muzaffarpur Institute of Technology principal has constituted a three-member disciplinary committee to take on campus troublemakers.

Principal Kumar Surendra constituted the committee comprising senior teachers Surendra Kumar, Sanjay Choudhary and Suresh Kumar to clip the wings of unruly students trying to defame the institution by creating law and order problems.

Things came to a pass on Tuesday when some engineering students set the motorcycle of a senior teacher of the mechanical department ablaze inside the campus. The teacher, A.K. Nathani, lodged an FIR in this regard against unidentified students at the Barhampura police station. The college is thus serious about restoring campus peace.

It has already pacified Samna Sagar, the girl student who had lodged an FIR with the SC/ST police station alleging a conspiracy to evict her from the hostel on caste lines.

Sagar was put up at three-bedroom hostel with two other girl inmates. The university has now persuaded her and two other girls to make peace and adjust in the hostel. Teachers played a crucial role in bringing about the truce. Even the 45 girls of the hostel, who had in writing urged that Samna be removed from the hostel, are being motivated to change their mind.

‘The MIT has also informed guardians of the 45 girl students to convince their wards and pay a visit to the institution in the near future.

The police said some of guardians of girl students, including those whose names figured in the FIR, visited MIT and met the teachers there. “The guardians have acted tough while speaking to their wards and advised them not to malign the institution by indulging in unethical practices,” said the station house officer of SC/ST police station, Shambhu Yadav.

MIT principal Kumar Surendra said a three-member committee is probing involvement of students in creating trouble.

The disciplinary committee would complete necessary investigation in a couple of days. Police sources said nearly 28 students of MIT’s 2009-12 sessions have been denied character certificate, needed for job placement.
