“We have cancelled the expulsion order of May 26 in the larger interest of the students and also allowed them to sit for their respective examinations,” said University Registrar SK Nath.

The three students were expelled following recommendations by the Residence, Health and Discipline Board of the university after inquiries that led it to conclude that the three had indulged in activities that were “detrimental to the university amounting to indiscipline.” The three students had denied the allegations. Varsity students protested, while the parents of the three students approached authorities to review the disciplinary action.
