DU law students with less attendance can write exam
New Delhi: The law students of DU with less than 70 per cent attendance have been allowed to appear in the exams and admit cards are being issued to them following a communication from Bar Council of India. The students had been protesting against the decision of the DU to debar them from exams this year due to short attendance for past few days.
"We have received a letter from BCI requesting us to sympathetically look into the cases of students with less than 70 per cent attendance. In accordance with it, the admit cards of such students are being issued," said Dean (Law Faculty) Prof Ved Kumari.
A total of 550 students were barred from appearing in the Law exams due to short attendance. A section of students were holding protests over the decision demanding DU administration to allow them in examination.
A group of students had ransacked the office of Dean (Law Faculty) during the agitation, on Saturday. "I have given a written complaint to the Commissioner of Police but no case has been registered so far," said Prof Ved Kumari. A complaint has been received from Prof Ved Kumari and enquiry is on but no case has been registered so far, said a senior police officer.
