Pay fine and get registered: HC tells JNU students
The Delhi High Court on Wednesday reiterated its single judge's order asking four JNU students to pay the fine imposed on them by the varsity if they wished to get registered for the next semester of their PhD course.
Authorities of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) had imposed a fine on the four students for allegedly "barging" into an academic council meeting on the admission criteria for MPhil and PhD programmes.
A bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli allowed the students to deposit their fines by July 28 and said that if the fine was paid then no other hindrances be created in the registration process.
However, if the fine was not paid then the students would have to vacate their respective hostels, the court said and listed the students appeal, against the single judge order, for hearing on July 31.
Earlier, a single-judge bench had on July 20 told the four students – Mulayam Singh, Shakeel Anjum, Dileep Kumar and Prashant Kumar – to deposit the fine and to go ahead with registration for the next semester.
