Alleging lack of transparency in administration, students of National Law Institute University (NLIU) staged protest in campus on Thursday. Students also met with the director regarding their complaint.

According to students, director did not respond well on their complaint due to which they demonstrated in campus. Students alleged that management has passed a first year students, who was failing by more than 10 marks. They said college management increased 10 marks of the student and passed him in the exam. Students informed that out of 100, student secured 40 marks. Later, professors rewarded him 10 marks and passed him in the exam which is against rules. Students raised slogan ‘College hai ye, jail nahi, Bachche hain hum, kaidi nahi’.

NLIU has released BALLB fourth year result two days before. Out of 109, only 55 students have passed the exam. Suspecting over the result, students checked the entire matter and alleged that management has rewarded 10 marks to a candidate due to some personal reasons. A complaint regarding issue was filed to the director by students. When director SS Singh sought clarification over the issue with faculties they said evaluation of one question was missed and later they added the marks of that particular question and increased his 10 number. Demonstrating students demanded to enquire the matter. They alleged that several irregularities are there in institute campus and management is supporting all these things.

“We are working to resolve the issue soon. Discussion is being made to the students and director is personally enquiring the matter. Matter will be resolved soon,” said Ravi Pandey, registrar NLIU. Police team also arrived the spot to avoid any casualty. Security guards did not allow media persons to enter the campus or click the photographs of demonstration of the students.
