Sixteen students from Jammu and Kashmir have been suspended by the Mewar University for their alleged role in the scuffle over the India-West Indies T20 World Cup match last week, a media report said today.
Earlier, police had arrested nine students and one employee — all from Jammu and Kashmir —on Thursday after they got into a fight after the match, which India lost to West Indies.
The students were, however, released on bail Monday.
“We have decided to take strong disciplinary action against these students. It needs to be understood that such actions will not be tolerated at the university,” Harish Gurnani, the university’s media liaision officer, told The Indian Express.
“The university administration suspended the 16 accused students, seven from Jammu and nine from Kashmir, till April 25, 2016, during which they would be barred from the hostel as well,” Gurnani said.
“After April 25, the students will be required to report to the university along with their parents/guardians and put across their side. After due consideration of the same, the university administration will take a final decision on their re-instatement,” he added.
