The protest by students of National Law Institute University (NLIU) continued even on Sunday. Students are sticking to their demand that Director S S Singh should be removed and then only, they will end the demonstration. Sunday was the fourth day of their demonstration.


In the meantime, students got another shocker on Sunday when they came to know that “NLIU Indar International Law School Mediation Tournament” and “International Conference on the Intellectual Property Law and Policy: A device for Research and Development” have been cancelled by the institution due to some administrative reason.


NLIU Indar International Law School Mediation Tournament was supposed to be held from November 17 to 20. International Conference on the Intellectual Property Law and Policy: A device for Research and Development was scheduled to be held from November 26 to 30.
“We are still continuing our demonstration and demand removal of Director of the institution. In the meantime, we have received an e-mail from the Secretary of Chief Justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court, Hemant Gupta for the discussion on the issue,” said a demonstrating student of NLIU, pleading not to be named.


On Sunday, protesting students resorted to silent protest. They are braving the adverse weather conditions as well. As a sign of protest, they sported black ribbons on their arms. Students also censured in strong voice cancellation of two proposed programmes NLIU Indar International Law School Mediation Tournament and International Conference on the Intellectual Property Law and Policy: A device for Research and Development and said this is an attempt to suppress their voices.


Moreover, they told that early in the morning, Riot Control Police arrived at NLIU campus and said that it was also an attempt by institute administration.
Notably, students are up in arms against Director S S Singh. They have accused him of trying to discriminate on caste grounds and making objectionable remark on dress of a girl.
