Calcutta High Court on Wednesday set aside a Visva-Bharati notification that rusticated three students on charges of alleged impropriety.

In his order issued on Wednesday, Justice Rajasekhar Mantha also asked the varsity to complete the pending administrative process that was required for the students to resume their academic activities.

The court’s Wednesday order comes after it had on September 8 kept in abeyance the varsity’s decision to rusticate the three while holding the move as “excessive and disproportionate”.

The court on Wednesday also came down heavily on vice-chancellor Bidyut Chakrabarty and varsity authorities on issues dealing with Visva-Bharati stakeholders.

Visva-Bharati’s officiating public relations officer Anirban Sircar did not reply to a text message seeking his response to the court order.

However, a senior varsity official said the court’s order would be obeyed.
