University officials claimed that current and former members of the DU students' Union misbehaved with them over the matter related to the mass failure of the students in Computer exam. Majority of the failed students were from the BCom program, who failed to score the minimum marks in the Computer Applications Practical test.
To investigate into the matter, Delhi University had already set up a committee.
A group of 50 students was led by the former DUSU president Satendar Awana and current DUSU president Amit Tanwar. These students forcefully entered the university conference center and started misbehaving intentionally with everyone. Not only this but also, they broke few things in the Proctor's office.
“They started around lunch time. They abused administrative officials. They climbed on the rooftop and threatened that if students are not given enough marks to pass, they would jump. They gheraoed the Proctorʼs office and wouldnʼt let the Dean of Studentsʼ Welfare out. He managed to get out with help from police, but Awana and others occupied the Proctorʼs office, and refused to leave,” claimed a DU official.
Awana claimed that there was violence or vandalism in the college premises. “When only the affected students came, they were sent back and forth by officials, who behaved aggressively with them. That is when we intervened. We have been protesting very democratically. The administration involved around 200 police personnel. Even when the Dean was being taken away, we didnʼt attempt to stop him,” he said.
“Five college principals have written to DU saying they had not been given a notice that students had to score 40 per cent in both practical and theory exams to pass,” Awana claimed.
