News - Students fined for cooking 'Biryani' inside the campus

news
After being caught preparing 'Biryani', 4 students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) have been fined by the authorities for flouting rules of the institution. As per a notice issued by Chief Proctor Kaushal Kumar, fines between Rs 6,000 and Rs 10,000 have been slapped on the 4 students who allegedly prepared 'Biryani' near the building in June.

"In a proctorial enquiry you have been found guilty of cooking food (Biryani) near the stairs in front of admin block and eating it thereafter along with other students," the order told on the students, adding the act was serious in nature and calls for strict disciplinary action.

Deadline to pay fine :

Students have been warned not to indulge in such an activity again. A deadline of 10 days has also been set for paying the fine, failing which more stringent action would be taken. The Chief Proctor of the varsity was not available for comments.

To penalise the students, the order invoked a clause in Jawaharlal Nehru University rules that deals with any act that may be considered by the vice-chancellor or any other competent authority to be violation of discipline and conduct.

Slogan shouted outside Vice-Chancellor's office :

One of the students, former JNUSU general secretary Satarupa Chakraborty, who was slapped a fine of Rs 10,000, was also found guilty for holding a protest demonstration and slogan shouting in the vice-chancellor's office on the same day before cooking 'Biriyani'. On June 27, the students' union president Mohit Kumar Pandey and general secretary Chakraborty went to the VC to put forth of students' issues and refused to leave till the VC hear them out.

"Does a university proctor office run to monitor who cooks and eats Biryani in a residential campus like the JNU where such activities are well-cherished practice, part of the culture and helped build up a community bonding among students coming from all across the country," Chakraborty told.
