Patna: Bihar`s premier Patna University
has rusticated 21 students on the charge of violence and
manhandling of senior teachers.
"The university disciplinary committee which met here
yesterday decided to rusticate the students for violence and
manhandling of teachers at the principal`s chamber,"
university sources said on Monday.
All the students stood rusticated till the pendency of
the inquiry into their action, they said.
The university has informed the Patna district
administration about the action taken against the students and
sought security arrangements on the campus, the sources said.
The university Vice-Chancellor Shyam Lal said an
inquiry committee would shortly be constituted to look into
"The students will get a fair hearing, but there
will be zero tolerance for taking law into their own hands,"
