Professor Ansari said “One of the parent reported the matter and after conducting a detail inquiry, I found out that five students of BTech-II including Anurag Amrit, Anurag Mishra, Ashish Kataria, Manvendra Rai and Siddhant Kumar were troubling their junior and unnecessarily harassing him”. He also added I spoke to parents of the senior inmates and have written to proctor with the recommendation of taking suitable action.
