57 NIT Agartala students sacked over Facebook comment

A disciplinary panel of the National Institute of Technology (NIT) here has proposed to suspend 57 students for six months over a comment on Facebook against a girls’ hostel superintendent.

A seven-member disciplinary panel of the NIT, headed by R S Panua, last week proposed to suspend 57 students from classes for six months. It also suggested to suspend the students from the hostel for one year, guardians of some students told reporters on Thursday. Panua is the dean of students’ welfare at the NIT, Agartala.  One of the guardians, who did not wish to be named, said: ‘The disciplinary committee proposed the punishment after a student equated the hostel superintendent with Nazi leader Adolf Hitler in a Facebook post and the remaining students supported the comment.’
