Degree blow to unruly MIT students

The Muzaffarpur Institute of Technology (MIT) administration has decided not to issue degrees to students chargesheeted for involvement in Thursday’s clash.

Character certificates, too, would not be awarded degrees to students involved.

Three FIRs have been lodged in connection with the fight between two groups of students. District magistrate (DM) Anupam Kumar said he has reviewed the situation in the aftermath of the violence and has directed the principal to initiate action against the guilty students.

Anupam said he has asked the senior superintendent of police (SSP), Saurav Kumar, to put names of the students in a goonda (goon) register. The register was created at Barhampura police station in 2011 to tighten the noose around students involved in criminal activities. Students apply for the character certificates after collecting their degrees.

Anupam has ordered principal Anjani Kumar Nathani to deal sternly against wrongdoers.

“All students of MIT would be issued identity cards and they would have to carry it with them,” said the principal. The DM has also directed the principal and members of the college disciplinary committee to send a letter to the guardians of the students involved and call them if required.

SSP Kumar said names of 92 students had figured in Thursday’s violence.

“The police have started investigations and would soon would file chargesheet against troublemakers within a month,” said the officer. The SSP has asked the principal to hire private armed security guards as a precautionary measure.
