Today, hundreds of students with the support of some political parties and human rights organizations marched to English and Foreign Languages University (Eflu) to protest against the rustication of three students by the university’s administration.

The university alleged that the three students, Mohan Dharavath, an adivasi, Satheesh Nainala and Subhash Kumar, both Bahujan students broke the glass door of the varsity library during a protest march on March 11th - they were rusticated. Apparently, 13 members of the library’s staff who were present inside the building during the alleged incident have given written statements to the varsity registrar saying that they could not identify anyone.

The students were apparently rusticated without any probe on the part of the university. Many petitions allege, “Caste continually plays a role in the academic and social life of our University.”

Reportedly, the civil society activists who went to Eflu in the past four days to express solidarity with the rusticated students had earlier expressed their lack of trust on the committee which investigated the incident.

Meanwhile, “Chaldo Eflu” saw hundreds of students from both campuses marching to the Eflu campus.

Students have been protesting for the past five days demanding the university administration withdraw the rustication orders. They have also voiced the demand that the vice chancellor of the varsity, Sunaina Singh, resign from her post.
