Delhi University's law students once again call for an indefinite hunger strike over the failure of 50 per cent students in the semester exams.
Last month, the university declared the results of the semester exams but the students alleged there was some problem with it as some of them have been marked absent while scores of few others were revised later.
What made the students to call for a hunger strike?
- Following declaration of results, the students had gone on a strike which was called off after the authorities had assured them of looking into their grievances
- Out of 1944 students, 882 students have failed in at least one subject in the semester examination
- "We have been talking to the authorities since last month and exploring the re-evaluation options as well but nothing has materialized forcing us to go on strike again," a protesting student said
- This is not the first time that the law faculty of the university has reported mass failures. Last year, when the results were declared almost half of law students at Delhi University had compartments. The students had taken out protests to gather the interest of authorities to rectify their results.
- The Faculty of Law has three centres - Law Centre I (LCI), Campus Law Centre (CLC) and Law Centre II (LC II). CLC usually admits the highest scorers of the entrance test.
Meanwhile, Law Faculty Dean SC Rana was not available for his comments on the issue.
