A show-cause notice issued to a PhD student for allegedly giving misleading account to the media about some issues faced by the varsity has been withdrawn, according to university sources.
The decision was taken after some students allegedly affiliated to a political party sat on hunger strike.
“Your response was examined by the Dean of Students Welfare and the Proctorial Office and was found to be satisfactory. Hence, the show-cause has been withdrawn,” a communication sent to the student said.
Report had surfaced about how a research scholar was given notice after he had given lead to a local reporter, Jamia alumnus, about alleged lack of chairs in the library which university sources rubbished the report pointing out that the library is well-equipped. Also, the issue of water logging on the campus was raised.
The notice issued to Imran by Chief Proctor Mehtab Alam said: “It has been reported that you have given statement that there was a shortage of chairs in library room. Again you have put allegation on Jamia administration that hostel campus is flooded with water and administration is coolly sleeping.”
“Such irresponsible behaviour of yours of giving misleading accounts amounts to unbecoming a PhD student of Jamia. Take note that your above said unlawful acts are in gross violation of the rules and regulations, and are being viewed seriously by the authorities,” the notice added, reported the PTI.
