Hyderabad: The authorities of MNR Medical College, Sangareddy, reportedly suspended 20 second and third-year students for consuming alcohol and organising a party on campus. Students alleged that the principal has suspended the students without any proof of them having consumed alcohol.
The decision to suspend the students was reportedly taken after some students were found having a birthday party in the hostel on Tuesday.
A final year student, on condition of anonymity, said, “There were around 30 to 40 students in the hostel and we were celebrating the birthday of one of the inmates of the hostel, without any alcohol. After noticing that we cut a cake at midnight, the security guard took pictures and videos of us and sent them to the principal alleging that we were consuming alcohol based on the presence of some old beer bottles in the hostel.” He added that 20 students had been suspended on false charges when they had only been cutting a cake in the hostel.
The decision was protested by around 200 students. The principal eventually promised to revoke the suspension orders. When contacted, Venkat Ramanaiyah, the principal of MNR Medical College said, ‘’It is an internal matter of the college; we will resolve the issue.”...
