The university is also considering removing the employee involved in the clash.

“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.
