Court allows rusticated MBBS student to sit for examJune 8th, 2012 - 10:07 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 8 (IANS) The Delhi High Court Friday directed the Army College of Medical Sciences here to allow a rusticated MBBS student to sit for the college’s internal exams starting June 11.
The petitioner, Pankaj Kumar Tiwari, a final-year MBBS student, was rusticated for three months in May for alleged indiscipline.
Justice Vipin Sanghi also issued notice to the Army College of Medical Sciences, Army Welfare Education Society, director general (Medical Sciences) and Guru Govind Singh Indraprastha University, with which the college is affiliated, and sought their responses by July 9.
The court asked the university to give the student an alternative accommodation outside the campus on his plea to let him stay in the college hostel since he hailed from Allahabad.
The court orders came during the hearing of Tiwari’s plea seeking suspension of his rustication order passed by the college May 12.
“The petitioner (Tiwari) may be allowed to sit for the VIII-term examinations. It is also directed that the competent authority shall take a sympathetic view to give an alternative accommodation to the petitioner outside the college as his parents stay in Allahabad,” the court said.
Tiwari was rusticated after he allegedly assaulted his classmate Prabhat Kumar Singh after Singh refused to give him study material April 1.
Tiwari’s advocate contended in the court that Singh was quarrelsome and several other inquiries were going on against him.
The advocate said Singh had abused and physically assaulted Tiwari, who acted in self-defence.
Seeking court’s order to allow Tiwari to give the examination, he said his client should have been given a warning or be fined.
However, counsel for the college asked court to dismiss Tiwari’s plea, and said the charges were serious and if one person was allowed, others would also seek similar benefit from it.
