The IIIT, Nuzvid officials are reportedly planning to initiate disciplinary action against 22 students of the RGUKT who allegedly roughed up their juniors a couple of days ago.
According to sources, the E-4 (Engineering final year) students on August 29 reportedly entered the dormitories of their juniors on the campus and beat them up for objecting to trumpets and muscis arranged by the seniors for Vinayaka nimmajjanam. Alleging that some senior students teased and misbehaved with some girl students at the Vinayaka pandal, the juniors complained that the seniors had attacked them when they objected to it.
About 11 students suffered injuries in the attack. IIIT Director Veeranki Venkata Dasu said a Special Committee had been constituted to inquire into the incident and the 15 member committee had so far identified 22 students involved in the attack. About five students who were responsible for triggering trouble would face serious action said official sources. An interium report had been submitted to the government, district collector, Minister concerned and other officials and a detailed report would follow. Sources said that majority of the students involved are from ECE and CSE streams.
